Bonn - Bison and horses of a rare breed peacefully grazed in front of a nuclear waste centre at Ahaus, in western Germany, unaware they were being used as a shield against environmental activists, Der Spiegel magazine said. The authorities at the centre placed the bison and rare Prewalski horses near the facility to curb the activities of anti-nuclear protesters who have been staging noisy demonstrations. The animals are highly sensitive to noise. AFP
