not so cute as they want you to think

A police chase through Brookline backyards netted a Tom turkey Tuesday that is believed to be one of a trio that has been terrorizing residents and mailmen in recent months.
The neighborhood is where the turkeys have attacked children on their way to school, and forced some mailmen inside homes on their routes. Angry turkeys have tried to peck through a storm door window and one neighbor said he has had to fend off the birds with an umbrella during a siege that he labeled “a nightmare.”
Though two of the birds are still at large, wildlife experts and police are hopeful that removing one of the trio would cause the others to mellow out – defusing the gang mentality that has existed in the neighborhood.
