Love-Seeking Turkey Gets Aggressive

Dozens of wild turkeys looking for love have taken an Auburn neighborhood under siege.

It's the middle of the birds' mating season, meaning the turkeys are more aggressive than usual.

They're all hanging around Robie Point looking for the right match, but their human neighbors keep getting in the way.

Residents said they've been pecked and chased away.

One man said he counted 40 birds at one point.  He said if you face them they usually run off.

Some birds are even stopping traffic.  They jump out of the brush and "puff up" as cars drive by making quite a scene.
