Wild turkeys take Veneta

4 Feb

Wild turkeys invade Veneta neighborhoods.

This month’s newsletter from the city of Veneta has an interesting report.

Apparently wild turkeys have flocked to town, wreaking havoc on flower beds, lawns and coating property with turkey doo.

Veneta Community Services Director Brian Issa, quoted in the city’s newsletter, says: “They are taking over the neighborhoods. People need to know that they are not pond geese and they will cause an issue.”

You can read the entire article by Ephraim Payne here. It offers tips on how to handle wild turkey encounters, as well as some background on why they have appeared in Veneta.
