Mail delivery halted in portion of Rocky River, OH due to ‘aggressive’ wild turkeys

ROCKY RIVER, Ohio — The bitterly cold temperatures have nothing to do with why mail delivery has stopped in a portion of Rocky River.

The problem, according to the city, is an “aggressive” brood of wild turkeys.

“It has come to our attention that a brood of turkeys have interfered with postal deliveries in the Edgewood/Valley View area. The Rocky River Post Office informed us that the wild turkeys have created an unsafe condition for the postal carrier thereby preventing home delivery for mail,” a statement from the city read.

The letter noted that the carrier had “no practical means to ward off loose animals,” and had to return the mail back to the post office for residents to pick up.

    Even if justified, I might be a little embarrassed to go back to the office and admit that the turkeys were too much. You know this carrier will hear the jokes for the rest of his career, maybe a bottle of Wild Turkey at his case, people “gobble-gooble”ing behind his back.
