DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) - A flock of wild turkeys is making life hard for some Des Moines residents - and their cars.

Television station KCCI reports (https://bit.ly/1pCTy2Q ) that the turkeys are damaging cars in the neighborhood near East 38th Street and Douglas Avenue.

Dottie Bauer tells the station that two wild turkeys attacked her car around noon Friday. Bauer says she also saw the turkeys attack three other cars, trying to keep anyone from getting past them.

Bauer provided the station a photo of the damage to her car caused by the turkeys, showing deep scratches on the driver’s side.

Des Moines police were also sent to the area Thursday after a woman reported she was trapped in her car and couldn’t get out because the turkeys were attacking it.
