HILLSDALE, N.J. (AP) - Authorities say a New Jersey letter carrier trapped inside his mail truck by a group of turkeys was rescued by two police officers.

A postmaster called Hillsdale police around noon Tuesday to report that the letter carrier could not get out of his truck.

The responding officers soon managed to scare the turkeys away so the letter carrier could continue his route. But he did have to skip three homes due to the incident.

Wild turkeys neared extinction a few decades ago but have made a comeback in New Jersey in recent years.
