Today, we jump across the river to Cambridge for this complaint from Appleton Street:
This turkey has been pounding on this car since this morning. Scratches and dents all over. No idea who’s car it is, but it’s in bad shape.
The Cambridge Animal Commission responded:
Thank you for taking the time to report this issue. We are currently in turkey mating season. Male turkeys see their reflection in cars and often think it is another male turkey. Prompting them to go after the reflection. Unfortunately, the Cambridge Animal Commission will not deal with nuisance wildlife. If the turkey becomes a public safety issue the Department of Fish and Wildlife will come and @#$% the situation. For further information on turkeys and other Cambridge wildlife you can go to Mass.gov or Cambridgema.gov or call the Cambridge Animal Commission directly at 617-349-4376.
Ed. assumption: We're going to assume the Cambridge Animal Commission did a typo rather than expressed extreme outrage at the Department of Fish and Wildlife there.
