MOORHEAD, Minn. -- Getting chased by wild turkeys was a first for Moorhead Police Sergeant Clint Stephenson when his attempt to clear a flock from a busy traffic route didn't go as planned.

Stephenson says the turkeys were standing the middle of a driving lane and people were stopped for them. He stopped to see if he could move them along, but they weren't scared of him either -- and Stephenson says they "actually kind of chased me out of there as well".

Flocks of wild turkeys roaming through Fargo and Moorhead have grown significantly in recent years.
