#video | Why turkeys dance in a circle around dead animals?

What makes turkeys for hours to dance around dead animals?

In 2017, the network has a video in which a flock of turkeys on the street leads dance around the corpse of the unfortunate cat. Two years later, the video became incredibly popular and not hard to understand why — the dance looks the most ominous, and turkeys were called birds of death. However, experience is that birds hold special rituals like the black mass is not worth it. In his blog, mark Hatfield from the National wildlife Federation Turkey to this terrible behavior is not relevant. But for some reasons, the birds acting so weird?

is it True that turkeys — a very stupid bird?

According to Hatfield, "turkeys are very simple." Likely, they stay away from the corpse when deciding whether a threat to them the dead cat or not. A colleague of Hatfield Tom Hughes in an interview suggested that the behavior of the cat, even he is dead, it might seem strange birds and prompted to investigate. The circular nature of the round — it is simply the result of their desire to stay safe closer to each other. In other words, what seems sinister behavior, actually — just a flock of birds who can't decide whether to be afraid of a dead cat.

However, there are other assumptions. Perhaps in the process of learning or trying to intimidate a dead cat turkeys simply forgot what he had done, and therefore continued to follow each other. But are these birds so stupid? Actually no. The idea that these birds are so foolish that drown in the rain, is easy to refute. At least some owners swear turkeys that they were able to teach their flocks, and now they anticipate feeding time. No one is going to teach the turkeys, that they solved puzzles or played games, but these birds probably can easily cope with such tasks. So the fact that turkeys for hours dance in a circle around a dead animal does not mean that we should not take them seriously.

Turkeys can be really creepy

Because wild turkeys are heavily dependent on the established order in the flock, any animal that is frightened by them, may be subjected to bullying. And we are no exception.So, people who interact with wild turkeys may be in trouble. It is known that during the breeding season males become aggressive towards other animals (or reflective surfaces). So, if you happen to come across a wild Turkey, it is best to set the record straight and show who's boss. Experts advise to loud noises, but you can just swing the broom — such behavior frightens people and is likely to be beneficial for everybody.
