More Than 15 Turkeys Circle Around Dead Cat in Middle of Street

A creepy scene was caught on video by a man in MA.

Boston Magazine called "Massachusetts' foremost turkey expert", who said it was possible that the birds were trailing behind one animal who set out to investigate the corpse, and then wound up - follow-the-leader-style - in a ideal circle. A protest over the sheer numbers of domestic turkeys whose lives are lost to the cat food industry? The video shows what could be called a "cult" of turkeys walking around the body of a dead cat in some type of odd ceremony. People immediately started freaking out because come on, just look at this creepy video.

Footage of a flock of turkeys neatly circling around what appears to be a deceased cat in a weird, ritualistic dance has been making rounds on social media. "It's certainly unusual", Debra Kriensky, a conservation biologist at New York City Audubon, told the New York Post.

"Circling in itself isn't an unusual behavior for turkeys-the males sometimes circle females when getting ready to breed-it's part of their behavioral repertoire".

A spokesperson for the Cornell Lab of Ornithology told the website IFLScience that the "curious birds are checking out the cat, since it could be a potential predator, but that's about the extent of it". He added that this type of behavior also warns other turkeys that there could be a threat.

Iceland President Gudni Johannesson Really, Really Hates Pineapple On Pizza
To clarify, pineapple on a pizza is often referred to as a Hawaiian style pizza so long as Canadian bacon or ham is included. He did, however, say that he is a fan of seafood pizza - which may not sound very appetizing to our North American palates.

Either way, we can all agree it would be alarming - for turkeys and humans alike - if that cat sprang up.

The difference here is that unlike songbirds surrounding a hawk the cat isn't a threat.
