Turkeys terrorise Boston neighbourhood

A Boston neighbourhood is being overrun with wild turkeys.

The aggressive pack of animals - made up of three feathered terrors - have left locals scared as they are faced with the birds approaching people "like they're going to bite you".

Resident Kathy Miloe - whose husband has had "maybe four or fifth" close encounters with the turkeys - told CBS Boston Local: "It's extremely scary. It's frightening. If you're walking they come up extremely, extremely close to you and they come forward like they're going to bite you."

Although the sound of gobbles might scare residents, a MassWildlife spokesperson has urged locals to attempt to shoo the birds away with noise of their own, along with water, balloons and pinwheels while always avoiding contact.
