A South Jersey Town Has a Wild Turkey Problem

Apparently wild turkeys are a legitimate problem plaguing a South Jersey town. Last year, about a dozen or so wild turkeys made themselves right at home in Burlington County’s Hainesport. The residents enjoyed gawking at—and occasionally feeding—the birds. Flash forward to 2012 and all hell has broken lose. There are now 30 (30!) turkeys in the town and everyone is all, “Why are they doing this? Why are they doing this? They said when you got here the whole thing started. Who are you? What are you? Where did you come from? I think you’re the cause of all of this. I think you’re evil. EVIL!” Some of the turkeys have been bothering walkers and joggers on a local path. The town plans on instituting a ban on feeding the turkeys. Violate it, and you could be hit with a $2,000 fine. [Inquirer]
