Gotta Watch: Revenge of the turkeys

Thanksgiving may just be the most perilous day to be a turkey— after all, we call it Turkey Day. When the birds are under all that stress, who can blame them for wanting to take a little revenge? From chasing after mail trucks to pecking at presidents, you’ve Gotta Watch these turkeys unleash their wrath.

Wild turkey chase—A turkey might not seem like a very menacing animal — until it’s chasing you. One Sacramento TV producer went to check out reports of a turkey named “Terrible Tom” terrorizing a neighborhood. She got a lot more than she bargained for. See her hilarious reaction to this wild turkey.

Crying fowl— Dogs may be the mail carrier’s classic enemy, but turkeys are the pest in Grand Haven, Michigan. One mail carrier in that city is forced to carry a club to fend off the wild birds that attack him while he’s delivering the mail.

Talking turkey—It’s been an annual tradition for the president to “pardon” a turkey and allow it to live. On the first year that George W. Bush held a pardoning ceremony, he got a surprise from “Liberty” the turkey. Liberty didn’t appreciate the president petting him on the head. Watch Bush’s reaction.
