Viral Video: Turkey stands in middle of busy road to assist its flock to cross safely

Nature works in amazing ways and it won’t be farfetched to say that we learn a lot of things from our surroundings. From discipline to unconditional love, humans can take examples from animals and lead with compassion.

One such video of a flock of turkeys is going viral on the internet and it has left the netizens amazed.

A clip shared on Twitter by Indian Forest Service (IFS) Officer Susanta Nanda with the caption, “Leadership comes with responsibilities, not with ranks and perks. A Turkey stops the traffic for its rank and file to cross over.”

The video begins with a turkey, which seems to be the leader of its flock, standing in the middle of the road to stop the traffic. The rest of the birds then cross the road, one-by-one, as the leader waits. After the whole flock has gone to the other end, the leader follows. The best part – all the cars wait for the whole flock to cross.
