Arlington Police acknowledged yesterday the town is besieged by turkeys, who have taken to strutting about the place as if they own it:

As if the snow hasn’t put enough of a wrench in the morning and afternoon commute it seems we have a flock of turkeys gathering on some of our busier streets. Now don’t tell them I said this but they are not the smartest birds. This is part of the reason it can be challenging to navigate around them and they don’t seem to understand that your car is way bigger and they should get out of the road.
