    I read "Aggressive Turkeys on the Lamb" and immediately pictured some sort of inter-species S&M.

    Nice to know that the city which stands "strong" against terrorism is afraid of a turkey. Personally I wished one of those things would come at me bro.... It's turkey season after all. That shit would go from field to feist in 20 minutes per pound flat.

    I was just at the cleaners and this moonbat woman in front of me was talking to the proprietor about this story, saying it was all our fault for encroaching on their territory. She read it on some moonbat website, should we help (resettle, feed) the turkeys and disrupt the ecological balance or just let people be deservedly terrorized, blah blah blah. The owner of the cleaners - an awesome no-bullshit older asian woman who I've been going to for the past 10+ years - just politely smiled and let the moonbat ramble on in her slow, gentle, condescending tone for a few minutes. When the moonbat was done the cleaner started talking about an acquaintance whose grandmother starved to death in China during WWII. I left before she got to the punchline, but I have a good idea of where she was headed with it.

    Defeated by turkeys. It's fitting there is an active thread on removing the shield from the MA flag, leaving only surrender white.

    Which is not true. The last wild turkey in Massachusetts was killed in 1851. Between 1972 and 1973, 37 wild turkeys were captured in New York and relocated in Massachusetts. All the turkeys are now descendants of those 37. We're not encroaching on them, they're encroaching on humans.

    Exactly. The most that bird problems warrant is a forum post about it.

    That reminds me, I forgot to list my fake owls in the classifieds.

    I've walked among the supposedly vicious turkeys in Brookline, Boston, and Newton many times. They've never bothered me in the least even when outnumbered a dozen to one. If you don't bother them and keep a dominant posture, even the aggressive males during mating season will chill out.

    These insufferable people can't stare down even the most docile of wildlife. SAD

    Tom turkeys, like most "wild" animals, will sense fear and seek dominance over weaker members in the pecking order. As pointed out, maintain an attitude of dominance, show no fear, and they'll respect you. And a well-placed foot will re-enforce the lesson if one of them decided to challenge the order.
