Germany takes precautions against spread of swine flu

This DW News video is interesting about Germany. Germany is taking precautions against the spread of swine flu into Germany from countries such as Poland.

Extensive precautions are taken on Germany's eastern border. Special fences have been made that have electric shocks so that swine don't cross the border. Some people worry that birds could touch swine and then fly over the fence to transmit the disease across the border.

Germans are also culling boars. This means they are reducing the wild animal population by selective slaughter by shooting them.

Many people question whether shooting boars and erecting temporary fences will be effective at keeping the pathogens out.
