A Hyde Park resident reports the last thing she expected on a leisurely stroll to the neighborhood Dunk's with her husband was to be set upon by a fowl beast, but that's just what happened at Westminster Street and Lexington Avenue Sunday morning:
It just kept following me and my husband then jumped at me. I have a couple scratches and a bruise but finally beat it away with my purse.
An animal-control officer headed over, but reports the guileful gobbler made good its escape:
Went to location was not able to find a turkey. I drove around a few times.
Around 9:20 this morning, and just a couple blocks away on Arlington Street, another Hyde Park resident filed a 311 complaint about the bird, this time challenging motorists to go mano a beak with him:
Wild turkey, very aggressive, causing traffic problems etc.
