Chinese farmer walks 5,000 ducks to a nearby pond

Traffic in the Chinese coastal city of Taizhou is brought to a standstill when 70-year-old Hong Minshun takes his 5,000 ducks for a walk.

Hong says that regular exercise to reach a nearby feeding pond is necessary to keep his ducks fit and healthy.

Drivers and passers by are amazed by the discipline of the ducks.
