ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Sheep stormed into Paris' iconic Louvre museum on Friday as farmers protested against reforms to the common agricultural policy. A dozen sheep ran into the museum's entrance underneath its famous glass pyramid, baffling tourists and aggravating museum staff. The Farmers Confederation organized the protest, with members of the organization coming from across France as they protested against reforms to the European Union's 50-year-old agricultural policy. The French government is nearing the end of negotiations on France's implementation of reforms to the policy. The organizers of the protest were objecting to the effects of the industrialization of agriculture. The confederation calls for an agricultural policy which supports jobs, produce, life on farms and the environment.
