    Postal workers attacked by wild turkeys

    MADISON, Wis. - Rather than rain or snow, or even dogs, postal workers in a West Side neighborhood near Owen Conservation Park are being pestered by wild turkeys this spring. Mara Wilhite, manager of the Hilldale Station Post Office, said she expected to deal with all manner of issues when she went to work for the U.S. Post Office. But that was not one of them.

    "Just when you thought you'd heard it all," she said..........

    It would be sweet if the mail couldn't get through because of the turkeys... They can make it through 8 feet of snow and hurricane conditions, but not past a flock(?) of turkeys.
    ;D

    They are not afraid. It's all part of the animal conspiracy to strike back at humans.
