Psychic animals galore

Germany's 'psychic' pets concern animal rights group

Germany has upset animal rights activists with its latest attempts to predict the outcome of Euro 2012.

Two years after the death of popular pundit Paul the octopus, a range of pets are now being deployed to "predict" which football team will win.

However, Yvonne the cow, Kasimir the alpaca and Xaver the bulldog have upset German animal rights activists.
