Real-Life Sequel to 'The Birds' In Elkhart, Ind., a flock of wild turkeys was seen standing in the road, obstructing traffic near a school. Later, at the same elementary school, kids looked out the window to see the turkeys outside. Then the kids went out to play, and the birds attacked. Soon, police and animal control workers brought in nets. They spent 25 minutes chasing the turkeys … and they failed to catch a single one.
