SACRAMENTO -- After hearing neighbors' stories of wild turkeys chasing down joggers and other residents in an Arden area neighborhood, News10 producer Duffy Kelly went out for a first-hand look.
Duffy said she "didn't want to take the 'Terrible Tom' stories at face value," so on Thursday she went to the neighborhood and tried to walk past one of the birds.
Duffy had her camera rolling for her unexpected turkey run.
Neighbors told Duffy the turkeys have been in the area for years and usually scurry away when folks walk by. They say only recently two turkeys broke off from the flock and are intent on standing guard in their own empty lot.
Some people are carrying sticks to frighten off the turkeys, but neighbors say they don't want any harm to come to them.
They just want friendlier neighbors.
