Turkeys

Some of the wild turkeys in a flock flap their wings as they move through a yard after preening on Oct. 5, 2018, in Zelienople, Pennsylvania. 

A man called police for help after three turkeys cornered him in his Schererville garage for more than 30 minutes Oct. 6, 2019.

SCHERERVILLE — A man called police for help after three turkeys cornered him in his garage for more than 30 minutes Sunday morning.

The man told officers he had been exiting his garage about 8:15 a.m. when the trio of wild turkeys came toward him in an "aggressive manner" just outside his home in the 1400 block of Austin Avenue.

Police then contacted Lake County DNR for assistance, so its conservation officers could "thin the herd immediately."
