collective suicide of sheep

sheep.jpg probably many have read about this in the local papers around the globe. in Van, a city in eastern Turkey, one sheep jumps off a cliff, is followed by the others and all of a
sudden, 450 sheep are perished and the herdsmen can do nothing, but watch the sheep, a total of 1500, committing suicide one after the other. a perfect example of herding instinct at work, the incident is both tragic and unbelievably zany.
