Watch: Bizarre 'Reindeer Circles' Caught on Film

A mesmerizing and mystifying video out of Russia shows huge herds of  reindeer walking in a circular pattern and no one is quite sure why. The  strange scene was captured via a drone during an expedition to the  country's Kola Peninsula and posted online by the director of St.  Petersburg's Museum of Anthropology and Ethnography.  Unfortunately, he had no explanation for the strange behavior of the  reindeer as he only added the cryptic caption "a friend of mine said  that the cycles and whirlpools are paths to a different reality."

According to a perusal of responses to the video,  the possible reasons cited by viewers were paranormal-themed proposals  such as energy vortexes or whatever force may be behind crop circles.  More rational-minded individuals suggested that this was simply a  defense tactic by the creatures where they protect members of their herd  by keeping them 'hidden' at the center of the swirling mass of  reindeer. Others opined that perhaps the animals were trying to keep  warm, although one would suspect that this would a more commonplace  occurrence should that be the reason for their movements.

Check out the strange video over at the Coast to Coast AM website and see if you can solve the mystery.
