          Its not carnivorous when it only trap one type of animal and its very specific on that too, btw theres no way they evolved that fast to eat wooly sheep, wooly sheep were bred to be wooly natural sheep dont have as much wool as wooly sheeps do

            Rubbish. Carnivourous plants can not extract sufficient nutriment from the soil. Those brambles are surviving fine. Want to stop your sheep getting caught up in them? Once word. fence.

              Now the Bible scriptures that reference Sheep makes even more sense. There are always these little connections and hints God gives us, we just have to pay closer attention to all the weaved in meanings.

                Once I was caught by such a tree and I was scared. I said, please don't eat me. There came a reply, don't worry, I'm just a white goat eating plant. I'm not going to eat you. But, I wasn't released until I became viral. And then YouTube saved me.

                                So this plant developed to be carnivorous eating an animal that doesn't naturally f****** exist! Yeah the logic there is sound here's a question how many deer do you find stuck in brambles or rabbits or any natural animal!

                                  Sounds like you're in an actual inescapable predicament, what with you wanting the wool and NOT wanting the sheep to die, AND wanting the benefits of the brambles. Yes, sir; a real predicament, indeed. So whatch gonna do?

                                    This farmer should seek a bramble contractor to kill the brambles. Would save this prob.Or fence off with chicken wire.

                                                          All kidding aside, but if vegans took that stance, the stance that says "we eat plants because those bastards eat us....we'll shit you out plants!".....if vegans took that stance they'd get more members.

                                                            Brambles didn't evolve as carnivorous plants. Notice there are no foxes caught in the bushes, no rabbits, no birds. Only domesticated sheep get caught because of generations of inbreeding by farmers, who sought to create an artificial selection pressure for those sheep which grow the thickest coats (thereby maximising the wool production of a given sheep population/area of land). This inbreeding has been going on for around 10,000 years, but the bramble evolved into its current form much earlier.

                                                            Perhaps in the far future some varieties of bramble will also evolve with additional advantageous adaptations (digestive enzymes etc.) that will help them capitalise on this anthropogenic phenomenon, but as it stands it's fallacious to assume sheep getting trapped by backward-facing thorns means the plant evolved such thorns for that very purpose [Cum hoc ergo propter hoc].

                                                                                    I mean like you said before-any "dumb" animals falling into it will just die from exhaustion or pneumonia or from exposure or just awaiting death patiently while insects(ants) dontheir bit helping the hole by devouring the corpse (perhaps before its a bona fide corpse- maybe while still alive..)
                                                                                    and the soil is thereby enriched for decades to come- wow- heavy heavy,
                                                                                    Thanks for putting me on the right path,
