I read the Nov. 23 article about the overabundance of turkeys in our area. Fish and Wildlife Department spokeswoman Madonna Luers said they have not had any complaints about them. I would like to take this opportunity to complain.
A few years ago, I called the city to find out what could be done about them because they were very aggressive, even in smaller numbers; coming up our front walk, flying after our dog and daughter, and would not be deterred when we tried to shoo them away.
The pest control department told me that they could not do anything because they are indigenous to our area. My only recourse was to call a pest control company and pay to remove them. Now, reading your article, I find that they are not indigenous, but were introduced in the 1960s from other states.
As the population grows, perhaps the city would look into how to control this pest.
