Brookline police snare restive tom turkey

Bird is part of trio that caused trouble

BROOKLINE — A police chase through backyards Tuesday netted a tom turkey believed to be one of a trio that has been terrorizing residents and mail carriers in recent months.

Armed with nets, police responded to the Aspinwall Hill neighborhood shortly after 6 a.m. after a woman reported that she had been attacked by a turkey. The neighborhood is where turkeys have attacked children on their way to school and forced some mail carriers inside homes on their routes.
