Turkeys of Doom!

Turkeys of Doom!

Next Thursday, a turkey will be a welcome guest in most American homes, but don’t be fooled. Alive and free-range, Meleagris gallopavo is a danger to life, limb, and giblets. Wild turkeys are flying into windshields and killing motorcyclists on roads across the country. In Canada, too. A bird even tried to take out a sixteen-wheeler on I-75 in Kentucky.

And the big birds have politics. Turkeys hate the media as much as any Tea Party loon:



UPDATE: “Roads & Wildlife,” George A. Hurst, National Wild Turkey Federation Wildlife Bulletin No. 23

    The early pilgrims would be proud of how tough Americans are.
    Let’s see PETA defend turkeys after this terrible assault.
    Gobbles may geeble but they never FALL down.

    I can go for days.
