Turkey Runs Off UPS Man

Some rather aggressive turkeys have been in the news lately, but this video, out of Minnesota, may be the wildest yet (many thanks to The Tenderfoot for passing it along to me).

The footage features a Minnesota UPS employee (unknowingly being filmed from the lunchroom window of a hospital), going toe-to-toe with a rather perturbed turkey. Despite numerous attempts to spook the bird with a jacket and a half-hearted attempt to hide behind a nearby FedEx truck, the delivery man can't seem to run off his feathered foe, and is ultimately forced to seek refuge in his own vehicle.

As the video closes, a passerby charges the turkey, and immediately the bird departs. Either that UPS guy wasn't very intimidating, or our gobbler is a staunch supporter of the United States Postal Service.

Check out the action for yourself in the video below. Don't mind the laughter of the hospital staff—they're obviously enjoying the show.
