Wild turkey taunts Tenafly

July 22, 2009 7:13:55 AM PDT
A wild turkey has turned the tables on residents in a northern New Jersey town. The bird has chased a mail carrier and pecked the tires of his truck and caused residents in Tenafly's Hillside Avenue to flee for safety.

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.
