This whole thing is too funny, specially the "turtle" jumping in front of someone haha

For the love of god , turkeys are not going to kill you, I would not hurt it , honestly if a turkey starts charging at me I would laugh and I would give it my boot to nibble at.

Don't hurt the poor thing he can't hurt you unless he jumps in front of you while you are riding .

A few years back in my car I came across a couple young deer standing in the road. Their mom ran off into the woods, but the young deer started walking toward the car. I slowly backed up and they started walking faster. I honked the horn and they just kept walking toward the car.
Finally I got out of the car and started to yell and waive my arms in the air. That finally scared them off.
I didn't want their mommy to feel they were threatened and come ram herself into my car.

My parents have wild turkeys roaming around their house all the time. They are mostly harmless.

I think you might be underestimating them a bit. Ever encountered a pissed off goose?

I've never really heard of a turkey being aggressive, but if one was, I'd pay attention.

I hit a turkey on a dirt bike when i was 11. Knocked me right off. As i was getting up i thought about the logic in aiming for the turkey. Lol. I was leaning into the beginning of a turn around 85 mph and had a squirrel or somethind dart in between the tires of my bike. I remember seeing it coming thinking if i hit it with the rear tire things might get crazy. Damn thing made it through without a scratch. It must have just had a line of meth or something. Haha

I had a rabbit run in front of me at night one time. Needless to say there was roadkill left behind....

I had a bird attack me while I was on hwy 99 going to Sacramento from Chico. That shit was scary as fuck. It kept flying in at me like a bomber, all I could do was flail my arm like a fat kid crying for cake. It did it a few more time. On its last try, that sucker pegged me square in the shoulder, unlucky for that shit, it's beak got stuck in between my backpack strap and my shoulder, I grabbed it and threw it on the ground and a car behind me ran it over.

I took the same road to school this morning. I'm about five cars back from the intersection. In the middle of the intersection, guess who I see.

I shit you not, as soon as this thing saw me, he came running at me.

I don't like killing things that aren't trying to kill me, but I may have to go Liam Neeson on this fucker; push him with a boot or something. Tried the rev limiter again, and he just gobbled and ran faster.

Tomorrow I may bring the GoPro on my helmet.
