The astonishing footage shot in the city of Samsun was reposted to Twitter by Ragip Soylu, a reporter based in Turkey. The video, as of Sunday night, has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times.
“Flock of sheep invades Turkey’s city of Samsun last night during the coronavirus lockdown,” wrote Soylu.
The majority of sheep can be seen moving in the road at varying speeds. But some of the animals were spotted grazing in an adjacent city greenspace.
As of Sunday, Turkey has seen more than 126,000 coronavirus cases and 3,397 people have died, according to the country’s health minister, Fahrettin Koca.
Globally, Turkey ranks eighth in confirmed cases, according to Johns Hopkins University, but experts believe the tally around the world is higher than reported.
