1500 sheeps jumped to their death

Was there a piper?
A freakishly white, black man singing "Beat it?", while wearing velcro gloves ?
Were the sheep trying to get away from ranch hand Abdullah?
Or were they Scientology sheep and drank the koolaid?...

questions to ponder over a nice cuppa....

Here's the entire story:

ISTANBUL, Turkey – First one sheep jumped to its death.

Then stunned Turkish shepherds, who had left the herd to graze while they had breakfast, watched as nearly 1,500 others followed, each leaping off the same cliff, Turkish media reported.

In the end, 450 dead animals lay on top of one another in a billowy white pile, the Aksam newspaper said. Those who jumped later were saved as the pile got higher and the fall more cushioned, Aksam reported.

"There's nothing we can do. They're all wasted," Nevzat Bayhan, a member of one of 26 families whose sheep were grazing together in the herd, was quoted as saying by Aksam.

I read about that. The economic vitality of an entire village has been SQUASHED.

Kind of reminds me of American politics...too many sheep...too few good shepherds...lots of cliffs

I raed about this in the morning. Such phenomena
have been observed among other species too, including
rats and penguins. It seems that at least in some
species there is a collective consiousness that
sometimes leads to extreem measures to keep their
numbers down. It is unkown what really triggers
mass suicide in animals. Some speculate that a herd
just follows a leader (much like American politics,
thanks Keith!) But there may be other mechanisms.

It would have been much better if they had remained at the village. What could they possibly have to face? Being eaten?

Never argue with an idiot. He brings you down to his level then beats you with experience
