Bizarre video of turkeys circling dead cat goes viralPosted: Updated:
RANDOLPH, Mass. (AP) — A bizarre scene of a group of wild turkeys walking in a circle around a dead cat was caught on video by a Massachusetts man who perhaps best described it: an attempt to give the feline its 10th life.
The recording shows what appears to be 17 turkeys circling the cat.

A cat was killed in the middle of the street, and a group of 30 wild turkeys were circling it...not to kill it, but like a ritual lol— J... (@TheReal_JDavis) March 2, 2017
Dave Scarpitti is a wildlife biologist at the Massachusetts Division of Fisheries and Wildlife. He suspects the turkeys were sizing up the threat of the cat and had no intention to make a meal out of it. He says turkeys prefer bird seed and vegetation.
