Terror turkey draws blood in Hyde Park

Turkey vs. man in Hyde Park

Tom dares man to step outside on Arlington Street this morning, two days after attacking couple.

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.

They could use something to chase the inhabitant out.

No fresh turkeys at my house. Frozen ones are just as good and are cheaper. Happy Thanksgiving.

...for ultimate control of the streets. Who do we think would win?

The geese since they travel in #GaggleGangs

...just because they are less aggressive and much more attractive. But they are still a sidewalk-spoiling scourge, and what I would really like to see is a huge flock of giant hawks dive-bombing goose and turkey alike. #TeamHawk

That's part of the reason I log into U-Hub, even after moving to Easton!

Just wave a can of cranberry sauce at him. If the gobbler has any sense he'll run like hell!

If that doesn't work, you could try waving a photo of the evil dictator Erdogan at the bird. That bastard has terrorized Turkey for years.

Turkeys do not. They were here before roads were. Turkeys are to be admired. They are brave enough to take back the road.

Let out your inner turkey, pedestrians.

In Dot & there's a whole family living across the street. Even my mean ass dog stays away from them. They are quite aggressive. They pecked a neighborhood drunk in the head & he was on the corner yelling at them.

Messed up thing, he always has a smart ass comment to make to everyone. So my daughter & I passed him, he said something smart & my daughter told him the turkeys down the street said they were looking for you.

He got mad, like what turkeys? I'll go see them right fucking now! I couldn't help but laugh.
