German sheep marathon in Brussels on 17 September

A four-country sheep trek across Europe to draw attention to the role of mobile herding in maintaining biodiversity and grassland will arrive in Brussels on 17 September 2010.
The shepherds and their animals were due to arrive in the European capital one day earlier, but have delayed their arrival so they can meet with members of the European Parliament.
The sheep trek has already attracted a great deal of attention in the local German press, says Guenther Czerkus of the German Shepherds’ Association.
