Turkeys Take Over New York Neighborhood

the daily dish More on PawNation: Birds, Turkeys

Hundreds, even thousands of turkeys have been taking over Staten Island over the past 13 years. The birds swarm people's yards and they roam the streets, stopping traffic.

"They're not afraid of nothing no more," said resident Mary Jane Froese. "They got so used to everything; they're like one of us."

And the turkey nuisance is about more than traffic woes. "My father would like to sit out here without stepping in poop," Froese said.

Watch the video below to see how bad this Staten Island turkey situation really is.

A wild turkey would be healthier to eat than the "Franken-turkeys" that are produced by Butterball. These turkeys have bred naturally, eaten what a turkey is meant to eat and have not been pumped with growth hormones or genetically engineered. I wish I had this problem...
