  • Dozens of sheep have been eerily walking around in a circle for 12 days straight in northern China’s Inner Mongolia region.
  • The bizarre behavior, captured on surveillance video, shows the large flock continuously marching clockwise in a nearly perfect circle on a farm.
  • Some other sheep can be seen watching from outside the rotation while others at times stand motionless in the center.
  • Video of the strange scene was tweeted Wednesday by Chinese state-run outlet People’s Daily, which reported the sheep are perfectly healthy and the cause of the behavior remains a mystery.
