A farmer stops traffic taking his 5,000 ducks for a walk to the pond. Â The sight of 5,000 ducks crossing a highway under the guidance of a lone herder is probably not something you see every day, but itâ€™s apparently what a farmer in the Chinese coastal city of Taizhou does regularly.
Farmer Hong takes the trip to a feeding pond thatâ€™s a mile away armed with only a long stick which he uses to guide his 5,000 ducks. The adorable birds waddle across streets and roads full of traffic, past pedestrians and onlookers who watch in amazement.
Whatâ€™s impressive is that Farmer Hong regularly takes this journey and he has yet to lose a single duck! According to Metro, the ritual is not unusual in Chinaâ€™s Zhejiang province, but thereâ€™s no denying that this farmer has some mad skills to be able to safely maneuver his ducks through traffic to reach their destination!
