I just came across this story with a video . It's the strangest thing I have seen in a long while. The short video is a guy filming a bunch ( flock ) of turkeys circling a dead cat in the middle of the road.
Speculation on what they are up to is varied but I've not seen an explanation that makes any sense. Perhaps the American ats members may have experienced this before. Any thoughts ?
Sorry I'm on my phone and not sure how to post the video but the video and story are at the link below.

It's a CAT, not a car and they are Vultures, not just turkeys.

The clue was in the stories title.

Seems the D.M. is making the whole world lazier.

This is the Vulturous Cult, performing their death dance ritual around their sacrifice.

Vultures would make more sense but the story says turkeys. I can't make them out too well on my phone.

Follow the leader? Class is in session.

I've witnessed crow funerals, this is different.

These are indeed Turkeys. Vultures have feathers on their neck. Plus, looks like one of the turkeys has a small beard.
Odd behavior nonetheless.

I raise Turkeys, and those are Turkeys, not Vultures. Not even Turkey Vultures. They are really curious creatures, and very protective of their hens when they are in the egg laying season.

I gave you a star.
I will assume that everyone that didn't give you a star hates budgies, sugar gliders, possums and every other small indigenous mammal and amphibian in Australia.

They are turkey vultures. We have them by the hundreds here in Cambridge Ohio

That is the most curious thing. Can turkeys sense death? Perhaps they have some electromagnetic sensor like migratory birds do?

I wonder if humans copied witnessed animal behaviors.

The article even states one person thinks they are likely sizing up whether the cat is still a threat.
Birds like turkeys have their eyes on the sides of their heads, they're not predators so they look at everything side on.

I'd say the best explanation is this. Plus strength in numbers means if they had to, there'd be enough of them to overwhelm the threat and defend themselves.

OMG People

They are real Turkeys, and it says in the story, that they are making sure it is dead.

Which makes sense. As the males can be very aggressive when the hens are around. I've been chased. While they come off as dumb birds, they can be mean and smart.

Amazingly cat owners here in Australia refuse to believe their cat/s are capable of killing the native animals . Cats , foxes , cane toads , starlings . minah birds , rabbits , the list goes on . We have made a damn good attempt at screwing our country in a very short time . Quite ashamed really as an Australian .

Now this gets me thinking....
I might be able to lure in wild turkeys using dead cats as bait...

I think people might be confused because the domestic Turkeys have been bred to grow larger.

Two of my Toms, notice the full sized Dodge Ram in the background? My turkeys are huge compared to the wild ones.

Cats and rabbits have certainly caused a lot of damage to your native species and the environment. Sad.
