FALMOUTH (CBS) — A Cape Cod postal worker has had some unwelcome company on his mail route.

Video posted by the Cape Cod Wave earlier this month shows five gobbling turkeys harassing a Falmouth mail carrier. The mailman has armed himself with a pole to keep the birds at bay, and tells the camera that this sort of thing happens “every day.”

The video has more than 1 million views on YouTube.

Recently, The Cape Cod Times published a story about the exploding wild turkey population in the region. It says turkeys have been stopping traffic and even posing for photographs by amused residents.
