Gary Zamchick says the bird chased him halfway down the block when he tried to put up a garage sale sign. Zamchick says the turkey "looked like the Road Runner."
The Tenafly Nature Center says it believes people have been feeding the turkey and it associates people with food.
Residents are advised to clap, stomp and yell to scare the bird away.
