Shepherd Wiebke Schmidt-Kochan spent several days practising with her animals, news agency dpa reported. But she said in the end, it wasn’t difficult to work things out – she laid out pieces of bread in the shape of the syringe, which the sheep and goats gobbled up when they were let out into the field.

Organiser Hanspeter Etzold said the action was aimed at people who are still hesitating to get vaccinated.
