Letter carrier carries stick to fend off attacking turkeys

FALMOUTH, Mass. (WCMH) — A Massachusetts letter carrier has to carry a stick out of fear that some fowl will knock the stuffing out of him.

A video posted to Youtube by the Cape Cod Wave shows a Falmouth, Massachusetts mailman being stalked by a rafter of turkeys.

The postal carrier has not been identified, and the only words that he speaks in the video are “every day.”

The video was posted nearly a week ago, but is not getting widespread attention after making it to the front page of Reddit’s videos subreddit.

Several people speculated on the reason for the turkey attacks. Some believe a previous letter carrier may have fed the birds. Others think the mailman was mistaken for an outside turkey encroaching on their turf.
