Recently MEAWW reported news about aggressive turkeys being a problem in a neighborhood in Woburn, Massachusetts. A flock of turkeys who terrorized the community by pecking away at locals, even chasing cars and trapping terrified residents inside their vehicles. As per a CBS report, the attacks took place near Nashua and Tremont streets. Narrating the trauma, Meaghan Tolson, a neighbor who has named the turkeys, said, "The most aggressive one is Kevin. Then there are three ladies because their coloring isn't so distinct. It's Esther, Gladys, and Patricia. Even if you are parked, Kevin will try to get in your car." She further said, "You have to open your passenger side door and lure them over there, then make a clean break to the house." The report by CBS states that the turkeys hold people, hostage, by stalking them in their homes or cars and in fact, every individual has their way to escape their terror.

As per the MEAWW report, David Scarpitti, turkey and upland game project leader with Mass Wildlife, told the daily that the problem likely stems from residents feeding the birds, which could convince the turkeys that humans are part of their flock — prompting them to assert their dominance. He said, "Turkey behavior starts to kick in where they become so habituated with people that they are not really seeing that distinction. It's all about how they respond to the turkeys. If you turn and run away, now you are subdominant. He just won that battle."
