TOPEKA, Kan., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A Kansas cattle rancher posted a YouTube video showing how he used a camera drone, a feed truck and a herd of cattle to create a "cow art" smiley face.

Derek Klingenberg, who previously made waves with a video of him using a trombone to serenade his cows with a rendition of Lorde's "Royals," used his feed truck to move the cows around a field until they formed the shape of a smiley face, a feat that took several minutes.

Klingenberg had to double back at one point when the cows forming one of the eyes finished their snack and started to disperse.

"I fly a drone over our cattle while I try my hand at Cow Art with the feed truck," the video's description reads.

MOULTRIE, Ga., Jan. 30 (UPI) -- A Georgia animal shelter said offers have been pouring in to adopt an unusual dachshund/pit bull mix whose pictures and video quickly went viral.

The Moultrie Colquitt County Humane Society said its Facebook posts about Rami the dachshund/pit bull mix led to a flood of adoption offers.


"If you are looking for a popular/unusual pet, then this is it," the shelter said in a Facebook post, which assured readers that "he is real!!"


There were so many adoption offers for the 1-year-old puppy that the shelter posted a follow-up Facebook message asking interested parties not to overlook other animals in need of homes.

"We appreciate all your interest in our sweet Rami," the post read. "Please remember there are lots of homeless animals in shelters [as] unique as Rami."
