#1 Turkey attacks? Nothing the 4th Infantry Division can't handle.

#2 maybe instead of throwing the sticks, hold on and give a solid whack. I once killed an aggressive goose with a racket ball racket. Cooked him up nice too.

#3 "Verrier says there are basic things you can do to protect yourself. If you see a turkey, move to the other side of the street. Make noise or spray the turkey with water.

Whatever you do, don't feed them or try to take a picture."


IOW the Turkeys act like European banlieu youths and the humans are advised to act like dhimmis.

They should barbecue before there's a carbecue.

#9 AH,

You are sooooooo correct. We have turkeys around our house and schools and on the golf course.

The aggressive and dangerous ones congregate on Beacon Hill and in various university faculty lounges.

Wish it was as easy to drive THEM off as it is the feathered kinds.

#10 I agree Raj - Rick Astley is a turkey. But didn't you want to post this link instead ?

#11 Nah - I was going for the Rick Roll the whole time, just in case there were some people unfamiliar with the meme. Good turkey video, though!

#12 Turkeys attack in Brookline? I'll bet Brookline surrenders by the end of the month.
All hail our new turkey masters! It's for...the children.

#13 Y'all are all idiots, that's dinner out there, a shotgun will fix this.

#14 For the nuts out there, there's a pistol that's chambered for .410 shotgun rounds, that'll work.

And it's fairly quiet too.
Attention folks, that's dinner out there.

#15 Supposedly, Ben Franklin recommended the turkey for our national bird, rather than the bald eagle. Wild turkeys are smart, wily and delicious.

On the other hand, the domestic turkey - the type we eat at Thanksgiving - has been bred to be stupid and slow, but with a large breast.

#16 Watched a flock of wild turkey hens, about 35 count, the other day while hunting. They put out flank guards and travel in a column of twos or threes. Flap their winds to blow away leaves and peck at bugs. Interesting creatures indeed.

#19 You know, if they had some dogs instead of small-snacksized....things, then maybe the Turkeys wouldn't be so brave. My old lab chased off a flock of 40 in ten seconds flat.

#20 "It was like the turkeys mounted a counter-attack. It was almost as if they were...organized."
