My wife was driving home from work and saw some wild turkeys. She of course turned around to go get some pictures as it was a large gathering. Two of the "tom's" didn't appreciate the attention. They proceeded to block her path, chase her when in reverse, run back in front of the car before she could get away. This went on for what she described as "several minutes". They also pecked the car. Haven't yet checked for damage. Also tried to get in and take a look but luckily she rolled the window up in time.

The worst part of all this was the dash cam for whatever reason only caught the last 20 seconds of the encounter. Missed opportunity of a youtube hit. Here is a picture of the haters.

My turkeys are very friendly, the hens come right up to me, the toms stand back about 5 feet when I come out to feed them but that's it. They've never attacked me or my car.

I know its never a laughing matter when one has damage to a car, and my sincere wishes that only minor damaged occurred.

but: I'm sure your wife knows that there is a pecking order. And of course I'm sure the Tom's were hen pecked. And as you know they were real turkeys to do that to your car. :D

So sorry for the puns.

Funny as I just recently saw the viral video from Mass(?) where a dozen+ turkeys were walking in a circle around roadkill...

I found this humorous as the last encounter we had with an animal involved hitting a raccoon with my Gen I Volt and bringing it home with us (still alive) Now this lol. I'll have to post the clip from the dash cam. It's only the last 30 secs from the encounter but still funny.

The recent activities of the turkeys is getting as suspicious as the always shady squirrels.
