Mac & Mac's Pick: The Birds

July 13, 2012 Updated Oct 26, 2013 at 2:29 AM CDT

Welcome to Hainsport, New Jersey.

That's where some of the townspeople are being attacked.... by turkeys.

That had been Turkeys in Burlington County, New Jersey for some time.

Now there's a flock of thirty of them, and they're taking over.

The turkeys are roaming the streets and lawns and getting more aggressive...chasing joggers and attacking cars.

Township officials plan to round up the birds and relocate them, but they have to wait until the fall.

In the meantime, they plan a two thousand dollar fine for anyone caught feeding the birds.

That's got an angry reaction from bird-lovers, who say they can't help it if turkeys congregate under their birdfeeders.
