Default Turkeys terrorize New York neighborhood

http://www.upi.com/Odd_News/2010/11/...6161289426917/

NEW YORK, Nov. 10 (UPI) -- 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.

City Councilman James Oddo said many area seniors have told him they are afraid to leave their homes. He said officials balked at a plan he forwarded two years ago to move the turkeys upstate.

"How are people supposed to have faith that their government can deal with problems like terrorism when we can't even deal with turkeys?" Oddo said.

100 turkeys in one neighborhood? That's a lot.

That reminds me of that episode of "South Park" where a lot of turkeys terrorize the town!

This sounds like the beloved, infamous Thanksgiving ep of WKRP.

That reminds me of when I was in college (this was YEARS ago, I wrapped up my studies in 2007). My mom would take this route to drive me to school, since I can never drive. Just before we would get on the bridge, my mom would say, "Look! Turkeys!" and I'd look and not see them. This went on for a loooooooooooooooooooooong time, like a year or two. (sneaky turkeys!) Finally, one day, I looked before she said "Look! Turkeys!" and I saw them. For real. Two of them. They alwaaaaaaaays hung out in the same area.

Personally, I would just have a bunch of people shoot them. Hey, free Thanksgiving dinner!

We have a ton of wild turkeys around here too. Last fall I found one on my front porch and it kept hanging around and refused to leave. We see them on the side of the road a lot too. Crazy!

With Thanksgiving being around the corner I'm going to have to pull out my WKRP DVD's and watch Turkey's Away!

I may watch "Starvin' Marvin" again where turkeys terrorize South Park and Cartman is sent to Ethiopia.
