Video: Turkey Trots at Gas Stations

Posted: Updated:
Pittsburgh, PA -

A turkey is trotting his way to the gas pump in Washington County, Pennsylvania.

The big, brown turkey has been hanging around the BP Gas Station and 7-11 convenience store along Route 519 for three weeks now.

Employees say the bird likes to hang out on top of the fuel pumps, and chase customers out of the store.

"If he senses fear in you, he will chase after you like a dog. But it's a female. I don't know if it would really do anything, if it has spurs or anything. But I don't know, she likes to terrorize people," Stephanie Jones, a store employee said.

Employees say the turkey has a sweet tooth for ho-ho's.
