Two DCR employees with nets learned not to tangle with Larry the Turkey today - he beaked off their attempts to capture him and get him away from his haunts in the middle of the intersection of Baker Street and VFW Parkway this afternoon, according to a discussion on the Chronicles of West Roxbury II Facebook group.
Lea Cohen adds:
Around 2:15 he was being chased around the intersection by an older gentleman. Both were being chased by a cameraman.
Later, as the sun fell, we spotted him in a faceoff with an SUV headed into West Roxbury on Baker Street. He was winning. There was a BPD cruiser there, not doing anything. The cop inside was probably girding himself for battle, though - in the Roslindale Complaint Department, Erica Fletcher reports that a few minutes later, the cop cranked up his siren and turned on his blues and managed to shoo Larry away.
For now. You know he'll be back, meaner and ornerier than before.
