Posted on 11/21/2012 6:06:56 PM PST by mkmensinger
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 didnt stop there.
Then, the turkeys came and started attacking my front door, she said.

In this war of attrition I expect a major human victory on Thursday.
“Attack of the Killer Turkeys” was filmed on location in the suburban Boston area, where they had no shortage of qualified turkey extras.
We have quite a few here in South Jersey, but I’ve never known them to be aggressive.
They’re upset about all of the traffic in Boston last night... a 25 mile back-up on the Mass Pike and a 35 mile back-up on Route 128.
"Every turkey dies, but not every turkey truly lives."
I would think it would be fun to put on some leather gear and run up to and grab a few turkeys and break their necks and, nom nom nom...
Nothing that cannot be solved with mashed potatoes, stuffing, and cranberry sauce.
If the cops were called in, they’d shoot the dogs. Not sure about the turkeys, though. It might not be part of their training.
I actually tried that once. Wanted to see how fast wild turkeys could move if I chased them.
They left me in the dirt. Literally.
Wild turkeys have a nasty spur on their leg. -tom
There’s no question they are serious birds.
there are a few videos on YouTube, one has the police officer calling for back up ,every time he got out his car the turkey would go after him ,pretty funny
This was bound to happen when the Turkish government became increasingly islamicized.
My wild turkeys come in my yard if I don’t get the corn out for them early enough. The surround me as I feed them but never been attacked. I feed 46 a day, most of them being babies when they first met me. It is so cool.
The only turkeys I can fathom in Brookline, MA are the liberals wack-jobs that live there.
Ours are a bit more shy. If I go out the back door when they’re in the yard, they leave. It’s amazing how quickly they can just disappear.
I think. Forty-six turkey mouths to feed is a lot. Lol.

I have had plenty of dealings with ‘Wild Turkey’(s) and corn never entered the picture.
I am waiting for a President with gonads to stop this idiotic BS of ‘pardoning’ the Turkey.
My ‘hero’ will go to the lawn for the ceremony, snap his fingers and an ‘old stump’ will appear and an ax will be handed to the Pres - who will take the first whack.
They could raffle off swings at the turkey on the stump.
Of course the first president with the appropriate gonads will probably be TFPWOB — a woman of the stature of HRC.
Would that a turkey, much less more than one, would attack my front door. I would open the door and then go “Red Queen” on them. For lurking Libtards, Google Alice In Wonderland. Hint the character under discussion is known for the following line: “Trial later, Sentence first! Off with their heads! Off with their heads!”
If only said turkeys could present at the door plucked.
I did too, once. I don't remember the encounter.
Heck, a wild turkey attacked my husband’s car last year! Cost over $1000 to be repaired. Since then we have installed deer whistles on the grille because that particular car had been attacked by a coyote and a raccoon previously. No further problem.
Have you considered getting a different car? :^)
Love that car. It is far too valuable (having been repaired several times at great expense) to replace. We still have many miles to put on it, and it’s in great shape if we can just keep animals from running in front of it.
My car (bought used) came with deer whistles already installed, and we find that they really work. My driveway is a deer crossing. Normally the deer stop and stare and (often as not) charge right at you instead of getting out of the way. We noticed that when we were driving the car with the deer whistles, however, the deer would stop, stare and bolt the opposite direction. So, we decided to fit the other car with whistles. It seems to be working. And the whistles work for other animals too.

I am having a serious attack of Schadenfreude!

Likewise....BUT I would have remembered corn...ha...
So, there must be a ‘story’ in the Naked City inre your scream name??? just sayin...
I had mentioned the pardoning of the turkey etc and saw on the local news that obozo pardoned 2 turkeys....SOB just has to be the star, so maybe in year 7 he will off Tom...
They also had pictures of him handing out turkeys and other food items at a food bank...nice gesture BUT the people gushing over his highness was really sickening -
He, like Marion Berry, should be spending more time in GETTING PEOPLE OUT OF THE FOOD BANKS and self sufficient, rather than patting themselves on the back because they are ‘feeding the homeless’.
It would be (well somewhat) different if they were dipping into their own pockets with the donations.....
I got it from this.
In a story on aggressive MA turkeys, no accounting for Barney Frank, Mike Dukakis, or John F. Kerry?
Les Nessman: [freaked out] I really don't know how to describe it. It was like the turkeys mounted a counter-attack! It was almost as if they were... organized!
Must have been a very TALL turkey.
