In a town called Wenham, population 5,300, officials have received many calls with regards to aggressive Turkeys. There is a total turkey population of about 35,000! So humans are out-numbered.
This has prompted the town to issue some tips on how to deal with the birds.
Rule #1- Don’t be intimidated by an aggressive bird
Rule # 2- Use a hose or a leased dog or loud noises if the bird approaches
Rule #3- Don’t feed turkeys, as they could become tame and lose the ability to find their own food!
Rule #4 Clean out your bird feeder because toms love to nosh on seeds that fall to the ground.
Rule #5 Keep an eye on your garden because gobblers love their veggies.
Rule # 6 And, finally, cover your windows and any shiny yard do-dads because turkeys are vain and like to admire their reflections.
