As Thanksgiving Nears, 'Frankenturkey' Attacks in Connecticut

Wild Turkeys Go on Attack
Wild turkeys seems to know that Thanksgiving is right around the corner and they are fighting back in Connecticut.
Thursday, Nov 15, 2012 |

Marcos Carreras, of Farmington, or rather his car, has been the victim of wild turkeys not once but twice.

He was on his way to work at Kingswood Oxford School on Wednesday morning when one menacing turkey he refers to as "Frankenturkey" went after one car, then came right up to his driver's side window and actually pecked the door.

The fowl encounter happened bewtween Old Mountain Road and Talcott Notch and Frankenturkey attacked on Halloween as well, Carreras said.

According to the state Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, there are an estimated 35,000 wild turkeys in all 169 towns in the state.

It is unusual for turkeys to be aggressive, especially in the fall, Michael Gregonis, a wildlife biologist with DEEP, said.

It is possible that this turkey was accustomed to humans because people were feeding them.

Gregonis recommends that people avoid feeding turkeys. There is enough food in the woodlands for them to eat, he said.

You have to watch the video to see just how brazen the turkey is. Carreras' commentary and sound effects also make watching well worth your time.

There is a turkey farm near my sister's trailer park. Sometimes the turkey's escape and come for a visit. One time they wandered into my nieces' Playskool playhouse.
