Wild turkey chased two sheriff’s deputies

News

 (NBC) A wild turkey chased two sheriff’s deputies in Colorado and it was captured on body camera video.

The two deputies were finishing a call when they spotted a large wild turkey as they were walking back to their vehicles one of them let out a turkey call, which seemed to attract the real bird.

So as the deputies kept walking the tom turkey kept following. The big bird aggressively chased them down a driveway across a street and right up to their patrol cars.

While the deputies were unharmed they do want to remind people that wild turkeys have sharp beaks and claws that can inflict serious injuries.
