Now I know why they named a whiskey after wild turkeys! They’re bold.
I’ve never been chased by a bird. At least not that I know of. Maybe it happened once but I didn’t look up to see it flying, so I never knew it. Either way, I’d prefer to never be chased by one. They’re kinda terrifying. They have sharp beaks, and claws or talons, whatever you call them. And even though they’re pretty small, I imagine they pack quite a punch. In fact, to give you a first hand understanding of what its like to be chased by a bird, watch this video!
This video makes you feel like you’re in Jurassic Park. We see these smallish creatures from afar, turns out they’re turkeys and not dinosaurs. Regardless, very quickly we learn that they aren’t happy with our presence, which they quickly make known. They start walking in the direction of the camera and before long, they’re sprinting towards our camera person in the car. The guys start driving away, but that doesn’t matter to the turkeys. They continue giving full chase until the car pulls away.
What if they hadn’t had that car? What if they had been in a golf cart that couldn’t outrun a couple of turkeys? Or heaven forbid, they had been on foot? This video would be too graphic to post! They’d be roadkill by now! What do you think you’d do if a turkey gave chase? It’s taller than your waist! It’s like being attacked by a particularly passionate and irrational fourth grader. No thank you! I’ll keep all turkey exposure to Thanksgiving.
