German #shepherds marched their livestock across the center of #Berlin this Sunday to call for more respect for their job and better salaries. 200 sheep moved from the House of World Cultures in Tiergarten park and arrived at the Bellevue Palace. During the event, Knut Kucznik, the chairman of the Berlin-Brandenburg Sheep Breeding Association, said that many shepherds are struggling due to the decline of wool prices. In #Germany, flocks of sheep are mainly used for landscape preservation of around 430,000 hectares as sheep preserve habitats from certain plants and insects, preventing areas from becoming wild.
