By now, you have probably heard of a very strange phenomenon that has been taking the Internet by storm in recent days. Large groups of animals, insects and birds have been spotted walking in circles all over the planet, and there is lots of speculation about why this is happening. Some of the potential explanations that have been suggested are blaming this strange behavior on disease, changes in the magnetic field of the Earth, spoiled feed, parasitic brain worms, experiments at CERN, a coming pole shift or spikes in electromagnetic radiation. Personally, I don’t know what to think. Something really weird does seem to be happening, and hopefully we will get some more answers in the coming days.
In early November, a group of sheep in northern China began walking in circles over and over again.
This went on for nearly two weeks, and footage of this behavior has spread very rapidly on various social media platforms…
Bizarre video footage captured on a Chinese farm shows a group of sheep walking in circles for almost two weeks without stopping. The strange behavior has observers—and the sheep’s owner—utterly perplexed as they try to determine what’s behind it. The footage was taken earlier this month in northern China.
A closed-circuit camera on a local farm caught hundreds of sheep walking in a clockwise motion inside their pen. Not all of the animals joined in at first, watching the action from the center of the flock before falling in line with the rest of the herd.
Even our large corporate media outlets have been talking about the sheep in China, but in many cases they have decided that it is something to laugh about.
Hopefully there is a very simple explanation for why the sheep were circling for such a long period of time.
According to one expert that was interviewed by Newsweek, this could simply be a case where the sheep became extremely frustrated because they were penned up for so long…
A potential explanation has been shared by Matt Bell, a professor and director at the Department of Agriculture at Hartpury University, in Gloucester, England.
“It looks like the sheep are in the pen for long periods, and this might lead to stereotypic behavior, with the repeated circling due to frustration about being in the pen and limited [as to where they can go]. This is not good. Then the other sheep join as they are flock animals and bond or join their friends,” Bell told Newsweek.
Maybe Bell is correct.
