Have you been accosted by a turkey lately? It may seem like a ridiculous question, but not in Mansfield as of late. According to ABCNews.com, the situation has become such a problem that the community is now on high alert.
These turkeys aren't chicken, either: the "gang" of fowl has been cornering people leaving a local bank and blocking them from entering their cars. They even made a charge at a 6-foot-4, 240-pound Mansfield police officer.
"They've stopped several people," Mansfield's Animal Control Officer Jeff Collins told ABCnews.com. "They’re 25 pounds each, standing in your way, which causes most people to stop and hesitate. The turkeys take this as a signal that you’re afraid and then chase you.”
Collins added that four of the turkeys in the "rogue" gang are the problem children.
