Wild turkey chases man in Brampton

As far as videos go, this one out of a Toronto suburb may just take it to another level.

Reddit user “pcdsl” posted the footage of an elderly man being chased by an ambitious wild turkey in the Bramalea neighbourhood of a Toronto suburb.

The video shows the aggressive bird following the man who appears to try to swat away the animal with a stick, to no avail. The man then gets in a car to escape the bird which still is seen running after the car as it drives away.

This isn’t the first time wild turkeys have been spotted in the neighbourhood. “Cairo9o9” writes in the comments section of the post, “GTA is a big place with lots of farmland, I see turkeys down back roads all the time,” while “nakerb” adds, I lived in Markham and had about four of them in my backyard every fall.”

And it seems other GTA ‘hoods have also been plagued by the unwanted animals, such as Hamilton, Markham, Etobicoke and Scarborough.
