Brazen Turkeys Ruffle Feathers at Mich. Business

JACKSON, Mich. (AP) - Wild turkeys are turning into bullies in one Michigan town.

Tri-County International Trucks employee Dave Dodes told the Jackson Citizen Patriot that three of the birds scared a truck driver so much he stayed in his vehicle when he stopped at the truck service shop Friday.

He said a company worker had to create a diversion so the driver could escape, and the turkeys chased both men inside the building in an industrial area at the edge of Jackson, Mich.

Dodes says the birds had been seen near the building for a long time but only recently turned aggressive.

He says "they're not afraid of traffic, and now they chase people around."

Jackson is about 65 miles west of Detroit.
