"The one incident I had was with my mailman. I heard a lot of commotion. I looked outside and they had him cornered across the street, and he moved in a direction, and they were pecking," said Dorothy Sergi, who also lives in the area.

"It's just gotten to be terrible that I'm fearful to go walking with my grandchild in the stroller," Milmoe said. "I'm actually fearful to go walking on my own."

The birds have been plaguing the suburbs for over a decade

This turkey issue is nothing new.

A 2017 article from Boston.com explains that Brookline, where Jamaica Hills is located, has been a hub for the wild bird since at least 2007. At the time, the Brookline police animal control officer guessed that there were "at least two dozen" of the birds around town.

One woman shared a harrowing encounter she had with a bird - where else - outside of Dunkin' Donuts.

"He came at me and, at first, I tried to shoo him away," one woman said. "I figured I'd just go 'Shoo!' and he'd go. But he was very aggressive."

Although the number of birds seems to have dwindled, their presence is still felt in the town a dozen years later. In April of this year, Boston.com published a guide on how to deal with the birds.

A MassWildlife spokesperson said residents can attempt to scare them off with noise, water, or balloons and pinwheels. However, residents should avoid all contact with the turkeys and should - under all circumstances - avoid feeding the birds.
