Turkeys have been known to take full grown men down to the ground and kick the bejeezus out of them you know... beware.

It's hard to know what "acceptable force" is when a turkey is attacking you and you don't actually want to kill it for dinner -- and don't want to leave it alive with serious injuries.

Came out to find 2 sitting on the hood of my car one day. Turned around and went inside. I said you guys take your time, let me know when you're done.
I'm a city kid. I'm no fool with fowl!
