While it might be somewhat common to see a postal worker get chased down by a territorial dog, it’s not every day you see one get chased down by a wild turkey.
But for one Canada Post worker, this is a regular occurrence.
In fact, it happens every day.
Twitter user Don Cumming happened to catch the wild turkey in hot pursuit and recently posted a few photos of the large bird chasing the postal worker in the Lorne Park area of Mississauga.
The City of Mississauga responded to the tweet, acknowledging there have been reported sightings of wild turkeys in Mississauga.
“Birds may find their way into residential areas looking for food. These birds are good flyers and will find their way back to their natural area,” the city says.
Residents are asked not to feed the birds as it may put the bird or themselves in danger.
“We have reported this to Animal Services and they are aware and monitoring the situation.
Unfortunately, the postal worker’s days of being chased have come to an end as the large bird was hit by a car on Monday.
