Traffic along a highway in Italy near the Swiss border came to an abrupt halt when a wave of farm animals came stampeding down the road.
The incredible moment was captured on video by an astounded California family who were in the area on vacation.
Simultaneously amazed and befuddled, one passenger exclaims, "what is happening" as a veritable sea of sheep engulfs their car.
Adding to the surreal scene, among the hundreds of sheep is an enormous cow and a few horses that towered over their diminutive animal companions and trotted along with the stampede.
The family later found out that the weird experience was not due to an escape at a nearby farm, but only a shepherd moving his flock and using the highway as a means to do so.
