Photo: Turkeys go to the police in Barrington

Posted

Police in Barrington are used to dealing with turkeys, but this is a little extreme. A rafter of about six or seven of the large birds showed up at the station on Federal Road around rush hour Thursday, and they wouldn't leave quietly despite one woman who tried to scare them away from her Toyota Camry, parked out front. She spent five or six minutes trying to get them to disperse before they finally did, waddling down the road toward the woods.

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
