HILLSDALE, N.J. — A Hillsdale mail carrier called for help when a horde of wild turkeys surrounded his truck and wouldn't let him out, authorities said.
The local postmaster told police that a group of aggressive turkeys was keeping his mail carrier from his route on Esplanade Drive Tuesday afternoon, Hillsdale police said.
Two Hillsdale police officers responded to the scene and scared off the turkeys by walking toward them. The birds retreated to a nearby wooded area, police said.
