Do you mind if we follow ewe? Jogger is left stunned after an entire flock of 100 SHEEP starts running after her when she finds them lost in French forests

  • Video shows woman being followed by a flock of 100 sheep while on the run
  • Artist Eleanor Scholz was out for a walk when she encountered the stunned runner
  • Runner explained that the 100-strong flock of sheep wouldn’t stop following her

For many runners, they may have their dog for company while they run — but one trail runner in France was stunned after being followed by no fewer than 100 sheep.

Video shows the French woman running down a forest path near Puy de Dôme in central France – and she followed an entire flock of sheep in quick succession after they got lost.

Artist Eleanor Scholz was out for a walk when she encountered the stunned runner who explained that the 100-strong herd just wouldn’t stop her after finding them lost in the woods.

The video, filmed by Scholz, shows the sheep running after the woman and stopping when the runner did.

The runner stopped to talk to Scholz for a few minutes to explain the bizarre situation – and during this time the sheep waited patiently for her to finish talking.

The woman explained that the whole flock of sheep was lost and followed her all her run.

And video shows that when the woman started running again, the 100 sheep quickly ran after her in a haze of white and black.

Scholz joked on Instagram that the woman is “now a shepherdess.”

She later said on social media that the runner had told her she was leading the sheep back to where she had previously seen some pastures during her run.

She added: “It wouldn’t have been difficult to ask around in that small community and find out who they belong to, as the sheep are all painted to identify which farm they come from.”

Scholz joked that it would have been a “confusing” day for the farmer to find out his entire flock was missing – and to learn that the sheep had gone on the run with a random woman.

Sheep instinctively gather and follow a leader – and if one sheep moves, the rest will follow.

“Sheep exhibit an intense social instinct that allows them to bond closely with other sheep and preferably with related members of the herd,” experts wrote in a research paper published in the MSD Veterinary Manuel. ‘Flock mentality movements protect individuals from predators.’

It’s not known if the sheep made it back to their farm — or why they started following the woman in the first place.
