Video: Wild turkey terrorizes UPS driver


Workers at the University of Minnesota Hospital in Minneapolis were treated to a lunchtime show when a local United Parcel Service driver was chased around a FedEx truck by a wild turkey. Scrub-clad workers in the hospital’s cafeteria captured the incident on December 30 and uploaded the video to YouTube the next day.

The brown-clad UPS worker fends off the aggressive bird with his jacket while circling the rival company’s truck. Finally, the man retreats into his own vehicle, and a passerby charges the wild bird, scaring it away.

Minnesota’s Department of Natural Resources estimates that there are more than 70,000 wild turkeys in the state since the species was reintroduced between 1971 and 1973.

“As both the human and turkey populations expand in Minnesota it is only natural to expect that increasing interactions will occur, some of them negative,” the department’s website says. “Some wild turkeys that reside in urban areas have become acclimated to humans, which can create problems.”
