Forget the chickens. In Milton, it's the turkeys crossing the road.
"They go up and attack the cars," McCarty said.
The wild turkeys are visible in many parts of the north Fulton County city, but they aren't typically in the road, McCarty said. No wrecks have been reported, thanks to most vehicles slowing down to avoid hitting the birds.
McCarty said those traveling in the area should be cautious, but there's no need to worry.
“Slow down and try to go around them," McCarty said. "They’re not going to damage anything. It's comical to see a turkey pecking a tire."
