BROOKLINE, Mass., Nov. 22 (UPI) -- Residents of a Massachusetts town said aggressive turkeys have been attacking people, vehicles and even the front doors of homes.
Brookline Animal Control Officer Pierre Verrier said complaints about turkeys have doubled during the past two months, WBZ-TV, Boston, reported Thursday.
"Some people going to work and they've been chased by turkeys," he said.
Verrier said he has been spending nearly every weekday morning protecting students at Brookline High School from the real-life angry birds.
"Sometimes I even take a tennis racket to try and shoo them out," he said.
Karen Halvorson, who said the birds have attacked her truck and her front door, and caused scratches to her face and neck, said she is working with town officials to organize a meeting to discuss the problem.
"I can't believe we're living this way," she said.
