Some New Jersey residents say dozens of turkeys have been terrorizing them. According to the Associated Press, 40-60 wild turkeys have been pecking at cars, blocking doorways and getting aggressive. 

The turkeys can weigh between 16-24 pounds and run up to 20 miles an hour.

Local animal control can’t do anything about the issue, since they are not licensed to trap wildlife. 

A representative for the state Department of Environmental Protection says the agency is aware of the issue but does not have further comment.
