Germany: 700 sheep and goats herded into giant syringe to promote vaccination *STILLS*

Germany, Schneverdingen
January 3, 2022 at 20:38 GMT +00:00 · Published

Over 700 sheep and goats were herded together at Camp Reinsehlen near Schneverdingen on Monday to form a giant syringe to promote vaccination against COVID-19.

Organisers decided to use the sheep, commonly perceived as nice and loved animals, to reach the hearts of those citizens who were not convinced by the governmental vaccination campaign with a sympathy message instead.

Organisers explained the idea behind it on their website: "The idea behind it: Sheep are freindly bearers of an emotional message for people who cannot be reached with purely rational arguments: Together against the division, together against the virus, together strong!"

After days of preparation and training, the sheep kept the shape of a 100-metre syringe in a meadow. The shepherds revealed they used breadcrumbs to motivate their animals to stay perfectly on spot.
