Wild Turkey Ambushes Boston Area Couple as They Return Home From Walk

A turkey chased a couple and their dog on May 29 as they were returning home from a walk in Dedham, Massachusetts, on the southwest edge of the Boston area.

Video recorded by Lydia McMahon’s Ring doorbell camera shows the wild bird sweep into frame just as she opens her front door. McMahon hurries to make it inside away from the aggressive turkey, but her husband and dog are chased across the lawn.

“9 months pregnant, beautiful 85 degree days & getting attacked by a turkey trying to get back into our house,” McMahon wrote in a tweet where she uploaded the video, adding, “Everyone is safe & we can’t help but laugh now.” Credit: Lydia McMahon via Storyful
