PLEASE stop feeding those wild turkeys!
That may be the only humane way to deal with a foul flock of birds in , New Jersey that seems to be getting increasingly aggressive.
"They come after my car all the time," Melanie Morton told the Burlington County Times.
Morton said she even witnessed a wild turkey attacking a jogger one day.
"It was terrifying," Morton said.
Morton decided to investigate a little more; find out why the wild turkeys were hanging around her neighborhood. She claims a neighbor has been feeding them. So now the town is considering an ordinance to ban folks from feeding the birds. Violators would faces fines up to $2,000.
Larry Hajna, with the NJ Department of Environmental Protection, estimates there about 30 wild turkeys, but only a handful of true troublemakers.
"There appears to be a couple of bad actors. . .a couple of bad turkeys giving the flock a bad name."
The don't-feed-the-birds public hearing is set for July 10.
