Flocks of wild turkeys are in neighborhoods across Albany

They’re celebrating the holiday by dining on pet food left outside, fallen seed from bird feeders, and grubs and other edibles under leaves and windfall fruit. They can be destructive to property and aggressive toward people.

Feeding wild turkeys is not a good thing to do. Together with your neighbors you can get them to move along.

If you are interested in attention-getting but nonharmful hazing to keep turkeys off your property or regulations for hunting wild turkeys, contact the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife at 541-757-4186.
