Sheep get a bad rap for being unquestioning followers, but today it’s cows who are acting like the real sheep.
A herd of cattle in Saskatchewan, Canada, must be open to any kind of leader, because rancher Adrienne Ivey caught them taking cues from a lost beaver.
On Friday, the wood-chucker wandered onto the herd’s land and started poking around. Apparently desperate for some direction, the 150 cows gathered around the beaver and started a one-sided game of Simon Says. Whatever the beaver did, the cattle followed — at a respectful 3-foot distance, according to The Telegraph.
Ivey captured the amusing moment on her phone and shared it online for all to enjoy.
If the dam building business ever goes bust, this beaver has a future as a cult leader.
