A shepherd in Germany arranged her animals into a 330-foot syringe, visible from above, to encourage people to get vaccinated. Tasty bits of bread did the trick for about 700 sheep and goats to join Germany's drive to encourage more people to get vaccinated against Covid-19. Shepherd Wiebke Schmidt-Kochan spent several days practising with her animals, news agency DPA reported.
