Public Hearing: Aggressive Turkey

The Brookline Police Department would like to thank those citizens who showed up to expressed their concerns during last night’s public hearing. The public hearing was successful in addressing several issues pertaining to the increase of aggressive turkeys seen throughout town recently. The Department will follow-up on targeting reports of the three most hostile tom turkeys, as well as, all other turkey calls. In the mean time, we would like to remind the citizens of Brookline of ways in preventing conflicts with turkeys:

Don’t Feed Turkeys – Keep things wild! Feeding, whether direct or indirect, can cause turkeys to act tame and may lead to bold or aggressive behavior, especially in the breeding season

Keep Bird Feeder Areas Clean – Use feeders designed to keep seed off the ground, as the seed attracts turkeys and other wild animals. Clean up spilled seed from other types of feeders daily. Remove feeders in the spring, as there is plenty of natural food available for all birds.

Don’t Let Turkeys Intimidate You – Don’t hesitate to scare or threaten a bold, aggressive turkey with loud noises, swatting with a broom or water sprayed from hose. A dog on a leash is also an effective deterrent.

Cover Windows or Other Reflective Objects – If a turkey is pecking at a shiny object such as a vehicle or window, cover or otherwise disguise the object. Harass the bird by chasing it, squirting with a hose or other means of aggression.

Protect Your Gardens And Crops – You can harass turkeys searching for food in your garden. Dogs tethered on a run can also be effective in scaring turkeys away from gardens. Netting is another option to employ. In agricultural situations, some scare devices are effective.

Educate Your Neighbors – Pass this information along: Your efforts will be futile if neighbors are providing food for turkeys or neglecting to act boldly towards the birds. It requires the efforts of the entire neighborhood to help keep wild turkeys wild.
