Turkeys Gone Wild Terrorize New York Neighborhood

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Residents of a New York neighborhood said aggressive turkeys are terrorizing the area.

Locals in the Ocean Breeze neighborhood said the fowl have been blocking traffic, filling their yards with droppings and even trapped resident Gina Guaragno in her car for a short time before she splashed them with window washing fluid, the New York Daily News reported Wednesday.

Residents said the turkey trouble began about 10 years ago after a woman released her nine pets, and the state Department of Environmental Conservation estimates there are now about 100 of the wild birds in the neighborhood."

The residents of this New York neighborhood have a lot of nerve to complain about aggressive turkeys. How about the aggressive humans who terrorize and slaughter turkeys by the million for Thanksgiving dinner?

Most neighborhoods in New York would rather put up with aggressive turkeys than aggressive muggers and vandals.

Gina should be charged with cruelty to animals, how dare she splash a poor turkey with window washing fluid. I hope the bird retaliates by peppering her windshield with droppings.

I don`t blame the birds, their feathers are ruffled because Thanksgiving is right around the corner.
