Police called to early morning turkey chase

Two men rescued a woman from wild turkey in Austin Estates.

A woman taking and early morning walk was startled Saturday when a large wild turkey began chasing her down S. Azalea Blvd. She tried to duck behind some trees but the turkey continued after her. Two neighbors in a vehicle saw the woman being chased and pulled over. They picked the woman up and took her back home to safety.

After being inside her home for a few moments, the woman spotted the bird in her garage on Meadowood Drive blocking her door. She called police for help.

Updates will be posted as they become available.

    lol. I passed the turkey when it was coming down Austin toward South Azalea. It was just strolling along, chill. The woman probably provoked it unintentionally or intentionally. Turkeys can be aggressive over stupid crap.
