Is it real? Are turkeys on the endangered species list for animal rights activist to object in killing a common food animal? Shoot the animal rights activist and make animal food for the turkeys. They eat anything and maybe this turkey was neglected and hungry.

'Bout time these birds started fighting back...

Seems these people ran afowl of this Thanksgiving feast

My brother had three acres in Virgina, and raised chickens and a pair of turkeys. They are very large, imposing animals, and are very territorial, better than a guard dog. When we would visit, the male would come to the car doors and threaten us, we would have to wait until my brother came and put it in the pen. He was big enough to peck on the side windows, and yes, we were afraid of him.
