- What? April 25
If they're this mean now, imagine what they'll be like around Thanksgiving.
Two male turkeys are taking over a roadway in Chaska, Minnesota, forcing motorists to stop and sometimes even turn their cars around and go home. According to CBS Minnesota, the tough turkeys have been caught on tape strutting up to vehicles in an attempt to show who's boss. Why are they so ticked off? Local authorities say that it's mating season, and males can be aggressive this time of year. If you ever find yourself being blocked by one of these bitter birds, police say to just slowly drive forward, and they will (eventually) move out of the way. --Catherine Garcia
