How do you battle aggressive wild turkeys? Air horns, according to animal control in Teaneck, New Jersey.
Authorities have gotten oodles of calls about the turkeys and their out of control behavior. The animals have attacked people, pecked at cars and held up traffic. One even came flying through a woman’s glass kitchen window.
In an attempt to stop the attacks, local animal control is going to get 20 air horns to hand out to the public. For what it’s worth, Amy Schweitzer, of the state Department of Environmental Protection, says the birds’ aggressive behavior “tends to decrease in the summer.” But there’s a looong time between now and then!
