Woman stalked at home by turkey who wan­ders in from the woods

The Washington Times Daily - - Nation -

COM­MERCE TOWN­SHIP | An Oak­land County woman says she sneaks out of her house early in the morn­ing to avoid a stalker — a 25-pound turkey will­ing to bump, scratch and ha­rass her.

Edna Geisler calls the foul bird “Godzilla.” The 69-year-old tells the Detroit Free Press that the turkey wan­ders into her Com­merce Town­ship prop­erty each day from nearby woods. She says she re­cently couldn’t get to her front door af­ter a trip to the gro­cery store.

A video posted on the Free Press web­site shows Godzilla roam­ing the prop­erty. State wildlife ex­pert Tim Payne says adult turkeys are known to ag­gres­sively de­fend their ter­ri­tory.

Mr. Payne sug­gests Ms. Geisler open a large um­brella to drive the turkey back to the woods.
