Gangs of turkey terrorists are attacking people in Brookline, Massachusetts. Strutting up and down the place like they own it, the guerrilla gobblers chase people off the streets and, we're pretty sure, try to steal lunch money from kids.
Roberta Schnoor, a resident of Brookline, Mass., says she first started seeing the turkeys in her neighborhood outside of Boston a few years ago. Initially, she just noticed one large male turkey — a tom. But then she started seeing more. A flock started roaming backyards or walking down the middle of the street blocking traffic. And, Schnoor says, "They became progressively more aggressive."
The turkeys started chasing kids and joggers down the street. Neighbors would laugh watching the lawyer or pediatrician who lived next door being chased by a gobbling mob of birds.
When it happens to you, it's much less amusing…..
Wildlife experts say that birds who get accustomed to suburban life apparently start to see people as other turkeys, often displaying aggressive social behavior in attempts to establish their "turkey dominance."
Which, when you think about it, describes an awful lot about John Kerry's behavior, doesn't it? You don't suppose he's got some of the bully birds giving him advice, do you?
