Recently, there have been many unusual facts about the behavior of fish, insects and animals that move in circles. But what happened in England is something new.
Christopher Hogg (currently a faculty member at Queen's University Holloway in London) of Rottingdeen, East Sussex, UK, was cycling when he saw sheep gathered together.
A 47-year-old man says: “April 10th. It was my usual day, I drove up a hill and saw this clear circle in the distance. To be honest, I thought at first that a UFO had landed on the field."
"At that moment, I was about a kilometer from that place. I could not figure out what it was. A huge circle with concentric circles inside it. It looked like an alien ship."
“I drove a little closer and realized that the circle was made of sheep. Rather, this circle was created by the sheep themselves. A large flock of sheep lined up in concentric circles. very clear, I would say - the ideal shape of the circles."
Christopher, a professor at Royal Holloway University, drives by this place every day and has seen a flock of sheep here before, but has never seen a sheep behave this way before.
“Sheep are usually noisy. When I drove by before, they always bleated, ran hither and thither, in a disorderly mass. But on this day, when I approached them, there was complete silence. The sheep made no sound. They seemed to be in some kind of trance. It was really creepy."
