This video seen over 10 million times online shows a huge gaggle of geese crossing a road while forcing an incredulous driver to wait over 15 minutes.

The clip – liked some half a million times too – shows Mr Yin, 25, stopping on the village road as the orderly queue of geese pass in front of his car on 5th December.

The native of Fuyang City, which is in East China’s Anhui Province, then pans to his right to reveal an army of the white-feathered birds as far as the eye can see.

Mr Yin said: “We were running errands and had to drive past there. We saw the whole group of geese there in a long orderly queue.

“Initially I thought there were only a few, but then I looked to my right – there were so many!

“There was at least 1 kilometre of geese.

“We waited about 15 minutes. That’s longer than any traffic light.

“There were too many, but the goose farmer eventually arrived and made a gap for us, then we left.”

Social media users have commented on the rare sight in their tens of thousands.

‘Shiran’ said: “What I want to know is how the goose farmer managed that?”
