  1. Can’t defend yourself against turkeys?
    Welp, the muggers who see this newscast will have easy pickings next week.
    Who is that woman – Jimmie Carter’s sister? Good thing the turkeys are not killer rabbits or attack kudzu.

  3. Turkeys running amok, huh?

    Nope, no metaphors there, nuh uh.

  4. Buy a crossbow or a .22 cal high-powered air rifle.

    Dead turkey, and you have not run a-fowl of local no-shooting city ordinances.

  5. I often have up to a dozen wild turkeys grazing in my back yard. I don`t object because they are a source of food in an emergency. But, you have to pay attention their mating seasons. That is when the *beards* (…males…) become fearless and aggressive! I have gotten some chuckles watching the “white bread & margerine peeps” unwittingly cross the turkey`s invisible *no trespassing* line.

    Over weight and over aged, they nevertheless perform some impressive “100 yard dash” times!

  6. That last link made me tear up a little bit bro.

    Thanks for that.

    Thanks to all our service men and women.

    May God bless them and keep them safe.

  7. Verbal intimidation is the answer. When you tell a turkey, “I crap bigger’n you,” they know you mean it.

  8. I grew up on a creek, where we had lots of wildlife and semi-domesticated birds (geese, Muscovy ducks, etc.). While walking in the next-door field one day with our fishing poles, my brother and I wandered too close to a Muscovy nest that was well hidden under a blackberry bush. We didn’t know it was there, but all of a sudden we were surprised and beset by a large bird, hissing and honking, flapping and charging.

    We whipped at it with our fishing poles while backing away as quickly as possible. If we didn’t have our fishing poles, I have no doubt that bird would have inflicted some collateral damage.

  10. Considering that the top story is from Brookline Massachusetts, a once fashionable Boston suburb, I’m surprised even the ex-cannuk Animal Control officer was allowed to use an ‘assault’ tennis racket.

    Bet them turkeys voted for Elizabeth Warren too.

  11. ‘Round these parts, arrows are legal hunting tools in urban areas, so as not to scare the pants wetters by loud boom sounds.
    I’d certainly like to have a turkey problem so bad that a well-placed shot could result in an instant turkey kabob. For now, they keep to the woods/fields and are VERY skittish.

  12. Crossbow.

  13. I’m converting a PETA drone to shoot turkeys.

  14. Brookline the land where grown men flee from turkeys. What do you expect from pampered statists?
