Turkeys Revolt In Massachusetts, Form Gangs


Hey, isn’t the way it started in the 1770’s, with small revolts? Or, is it more like the streets of Los Angeles? The turkey’s may have had enough (via rdbrewer at Ace)

(CBS Boston) Neighbors are on the offensive in Brookline after what some residents are describing as aggressive turkeys.

“They were attacking the vehicle,” Karen Halvorson said outside her home in the Aspinwall Hill neighborhood.

After getting in her truck, a neighbor came and ran the birds off but it didn’t stop there.

“Then, the turkeys came and started attacking my front door,” she said.

A second run-in came a few weeks ago as she walked nearby.

“I looked back and three of them charged me,” she explained.

She moved to the center of the street to avoid the animals, but it wasn’t enough.

“The turkey flew in my face and scratched my neck,” she said.

Halvorson refuses to give up her walks so she has taken precautions.

“I went down to the hiking store and I got a hiking stick with a big ball on top of it. I walk with it all the time and now I never go without my phone,” she said.

The Halvorson’s are stockpiling sticks around the house to beat off the turkey attacks. People on the way to work have been chased by turkeys. They’re using tennis rackets to fight them away from the high school. Complaints to the police about these hoodlum turkeys have doubled over the past 2 months. It’s recommended that if you see one of these turkey gangbangers, move to the other side of the street.

You see how bad it is in the graphic, with that sweet lady trying to fend of the crazed turkey. When they start tattooing themselves, especially with tear drops, 3 dots in a triangle, or spider webs, well, people best start arming themselves.
