Massachusetts, United States (Web Desk): A flock of turkeys has been caught performing a creepy death dance around the body of a dead cat on a road in Boston, Massachusetts.

Over 20 of the birds walk in a perfect circle around the dead cat that was lying in the middle of the road.

The bizarre behaviour of a flock of turkeys has been captured by a baffled trespasser who filmed the creepy ritual and uploaded it to Twitter.

Animal behaviour experts are struggling to explain the phenomenon.

Top biologist Debra Kriensky told the New York Post, “It’s certainly unusual."

The cause of the cat’s death remains unknown but fowl play has been ruled out.
