This Chinese shepherd has found a novel way to both save money on a sheep dog and to keep his flock in line at the same time — by showing his flock a picture of a wolf! Ananova quotes a man from Xi’an by the name of Du Hebing who tells Huashang Daily he shot the picture by chance:
“After visiting Qinling Wild Animal Park, on the way home I saw a group of sheep walking along the road with a man holding a picture following behind them,” he said.
Du said he burst out laughing when he realised it was a picture of a wolf.
“The man was using the wolf picture to scare the sheep and drive them ahead – it was a really funny scene,” he said.
Whoever said there was no innovation in China?
