Postal worker trapped in truck by wild turkeys forced to call for help

A mail carrier in New Jersey called for help after he said his truck was surrounded by wild turkeys - and he couldn't get out.

The local post master called Hillsdale police just after 12 pm on Tuesday, saying the letter carrier was unable to get out of the truck on Esplanade Drive.

Tom Smith of the Hillsdale Police Department, who responded to the call, said: “I don’t know if he’s had a run-in with these turkeys before.” Smith ended up blasting his police car’s sirens, causing the birds to scatter.

A statement from the US Postal Service said the letter carrier was "attacked by a flock of turkeys" and it caused the interruption of mail delivery to three homes. The mail worker was not injured in the ordeal.
