5,000 Ducks Cause Traffic Jam As Chinese Farmer Herds Feathered Friends To Pond (VIDEO, PHOTO)

Posted: Updated:

More than 5,000 ducks brought traffic in the Chinese coastal city of Taizhou to a standstill Sunday when a duck farmer and his herd traveled to a nearby feeding pond, the Herald Sun reports.

As the ducks waddled into the street, pedestrians and scooters wove around the herd as onlookers watched with amazement.

Armed with only a couple of long sticks, not one duck was lost over the half a mile trip, an annual ritual in China's Zhejiang province, according to the Daily News.

Even more impressive, the farmer says he regularly takes the journey and hasn't lost a single duck in the past six months, according to Metro.
