Sheep As Vaccine Ambassadors?

Germany employed the help of 700 goats and sheep to encourage more people to get COVID-19 vaccinations. The animals formed a shape of a 100-meter syringe in a field at Schneverdingen, Hamburg. The campaign was aimed at people who remain hesitant to get the vaccine. “Sheep are such likeable animals — maybe they can get the message over better,” said  Hanspeter Etzold, the organizer of the campaign.

Any animal that has a prey-like mind (instead of a predator-like mind) could prolly do this. You can get predator-minded animals to do it, but its harder.

Wonder how they got the sheep to do that? They got Babe the pig to use the secret password:"Baa-ram-ewe! Baa-ram-ewe! To your breed, your fleece, your clan be true! Sheep be true! Baa-ram-ewe!”Works every time.
