That is one wild turkey.
Turkeys are funny birds, but can occasionally go on the offensive, especially in areas where their natural environment has become scarce; such was likely the case when a motorcyclist recently got attacked by a turkey on February 20th.

This little Jake is in what appears to be a busy town thoroughfare, the location of which is unknown, but the woods do look to be close by. Some comments on the video have suggested that he saw his reflection in the chrome of the wheels, but with turkey attacks on the rise, who’s to say this turkey isn’t just one of the many new aggressive birds roaming around.
As you can see, the motorcyclist and his passenger get away without any incident, but seriously – what’s with these turkeys lately?
