Do you need a turkey for Thanksgiving? Well apparently, they are running rampant in Staten Island. Check out this article in the Daily News. What I found pretty funny was the title of the article. "Turkeys terrorize residents as they roam neighborhood". Terrorize? Really? I've seen wild turkeys before in upstate New York and if anything they run away from people. However, maybe these Staten Island turkeys are bullies. LOL. I think it's pretty cool to have wild turkeys in the area, it's not common to see wildlife like this in these parts. However some residents don't feel the same. Many residents find them a nuisance. In particular, there was one quote in the article that said, "People think turkeys are a big joke. But when you have thousands of these filthy animals surrounding my house and pooping all over everything, it becomes a living nightmare." I think it's pretty ironic that people call these animals "filthy" and yet they love to eat them with their mashed potatoes and gravy. I hope the residents leave the turkeys alone. Maybe I should round them up and bring to my yard. Hahaha
Here is the video they had on the article.
