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.

  1. turkeys are territorial….they do not want another turkey like the postal circus coming into their area! looks like the bigger turkey is losing lol!

    • yes you are disrespecting a fine bird…….postal stupidvisors are the dirt the turkeys walk on!

  2. Why not have the toolbags deliver the mail. They would be
    able to harass the turkeys as they are some of the most
    aggressive “animals” around. The toolbags are just a little bit
    smarter than turkeys and would be able to rid the area of
    these wannabe toolbags.
