    Cool Release onto

    Please, in the following sentence:

    "When a pair of inept environmental activists release a mutant lamb from Angus’ laboratory onto the farm, thousands of sheep are turned into bloodthirsty predators. "

    Does " release a mutant lamb from Angus’ laboratory onto the farm" mean that those activists free a mutant lamb that was into the laboratory and that this lamp goes into a farm full of sheep?

    Otherwise, is there another word for store when we say "a sheep station"? Does "sheep station" mean kind of "sheep farm"?

    Thank You very much.

    Does " release a mutant lamb from Angus’ laboratory onto the farm" mean that those activists free a mutant lamb that was into the laboratory and that this lamb goes into a farm full of sheep? Correct!

    Otherwise, is there another word for store when we say "a sheep station"? Does "sheep station" mean kind of "sheep farm"? In Australia and New Zealand, yes. In Britain, no. We have farms, some of which raise sheep.

    Thank You very much.
