You might be startled to learn how big wild turkeys are if you didn’t grow up in a region where they live. Adult male turkeys can grow to be three to three-and-a-half feet tall, which can be daunting to a dog that is only a foot tall.
So you start to be concerned when a viral TikTok video shows a group of four turkeys closing in on a Chihuahua mix. These massive birds are many inches taller than the small dog, and they have numbers on her as well. It does not appear to be equitable.
The song “Oh No” by Kreepa is also featured in the video, which is a popular background music choice for the app when something unexpected is going to happen. But who will bear the brunt of the punishment: the dog or the turkeys? That is the most important question.
The dog detects the birds following her in the first seconds of the video but continues along the sidewalk. As the frightening fowl closes in on her, she returns a few worried glances.
The dog suddenly decides that enough is enough and comes to a complete stop. A sudden turn, a severe glare, and a few “back off” barks are all it takes. Despite her size, the dog charges headlong at the birds.
The previously menacing turkeys panic and leap into the air. What were they thinking when they attempted to fight this tough, no-nonsense dog? This is unmistakably her territory.
This conversation demonstrates that no one should be defined solely by their size. To win the day, all you need is confidence. Shame on us for being concerned about the puppy. She certainly knows how to take care of herself.
