When Turkeys Attack
In December 2017, a crew of hooligans threw mail service in Rocky River, Ohio, into disarray. The culprits? A rafter of eight to 10 wild turkeys who pecked at the postal employees and disrupted mail delivery to nearly 30 homes. Carriers employed multiple tactics to scare the birds off: one resourceful worker even resorted to blasting an air horn. After several weeks, animal control, along with the Ohio Division of Wildlife, stepped in. Using loud noises, they routinely chased the ruffled ruffians out of the neighbourhood, giving carriers time to do their jobs—and sending the message that no fowl goes unpunished in Rocky River.
