March 9 (UPI) -- Police in Massachusetts shared CCTV footage of a gang of turkey troublemakers engaged in "an attempted breaking and entering" at a home in Seekonk, near the Rhode Island border.

The Seekonk police department shared the home security camera footage showing the felonious land-fowl appearing to attempt to force their way through a resident's door.

The turkeys eventually flee into a wooded area after failing to gain access to the residence.

"Seekonk resident reports an attempted breaking and entering and the suspects were caught on camera. Do you know these bird brains?" the Facebook post said.

Experts said wild turkeys are known to show increased aggression during the months of March and April as their breeding season approaches.

A group of turkeys about an hour away in Boston were earlier filmed walking in circles around a dead cat in a video dubbed "creepy and weird" by biologists.
