Wild Turkeys Gone Wild

Turkeys take to cities, towns

BROOKLINE - On a recent afternoon, Kettly Jean-Felix parked her car on Beacon Street in Brookline, fed the parking meter, wheeled around to go to the optician and came face to face with a wild turkey.

The turkey eyed Jean-Felix. Jean-Felix eyed the turkey. It gobbled. She gasped. Then the turkey proceeded to follow the Dorchester woman over the Green Line train tracks, across the street, through traffic, and all the way down the block, pecking at her backside as she went.

"This is so scary," Jean-Felix said, finally taking refuge inside Cambridge Eye Doctors in Brookline's bustling Washington Square. "I cannot explain it."

Notify the neighbors: The turkeys are spreading through suburbia. Wild turkeys, once eliminated in Massachusetts, are flourishing from Plymouth to Concord and - to the surprise of some wildlife officials - making forays into densely populated suburban and urban areas, including parts of Boston, Cambridge and, most recently, Brookline.

Throw beads?

I'm all for this.
Let the turkeys roam the streets.


Admire those critters for a while, as they wander past... why not?

Then, when you're hungry; kill one, nice & quick.

Cook, eat, enjoy.
Be connected.

It's got to be better for both our species, than the horrific torture-farms we ignore at the moment.

Tom turkeys can kick your ass...and open your gullet with one kick.

Magnificent birds. Sometimes they wake me up, gobbling, in macho groups across the river.

Sometimes they glide in like dive-bombers, to land in my neighbor's yard. Thrilling as hell to witness.

Can't quite get the image of Stan Ridgway -singing Wall of Voodoo's 'Animal Day'- out of my head.

~There is no God and we are his prophets.~

-Cormac McCarthy-

Man is superior to the stars if he lives in the power of superior wisdom. Such a person being the master over heaven and earth by means of his will is a magus and magic is not sorcery but supreme wisdom



'The nationalist not only does not disapprove of atrocities committed by his own side, but he has a remarkable capacity for not even hearing about them'.....'Every war when it comes, or before it comes, is represented not as a war but as an act of self-defense against a homicidal maniac.'.....'In times of universal deceit, telling the truth will be a revolutionary act.'.....'War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.' George Orwell
