Mailman Defends Himself From Daily Turkey Attacks

Dec 15, 2015 By Archit Tripathi

The unofficial motto of the United States Postal service states that "Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds," but it never made any mention of wild turkeys. Nonetheless, a brave, anonymous postman in the Falmouth, Massachusetts area is not letting a local gang of turkeys interrupt his route despite the fact that he is harassed by them on a daily basis. 

While hampering a federal employee in this way is a perfectly "fowl" thing to do, I'm glad to see that this mailman is no bird-brain. He's gotten used to standing his ground against the turkeys, to the point that he's even got a pole that he brings with him on this particular stop that helps him keep the belligerent birds at bay. Most mailmen worry about being chased by dogs, but this poor guy has to deal with a bunch of angry wild turkeys. On the bright side, I'll bet he has the best stories.
