It’s a question that’s plagued Spokane homeowners for years.
How do you keep the turkeys out?
Maria Hartshorne thought she might have the answer. And in August, when a flock of turkeys descended on her South Hill home she had the chance to test it out.
She released the … cat.
“When a small flock of … avians settled in my front garden on Wednesday, I dispatched what I thought would be a sure deterrent; Iker, the fearless turkey-hunter,” she wrote in an email.
But Iker quickly realized this wasn’t his fight…
“Alas, being a sensible fellow, he assessed his foe and beat a hasty retreat,” Hartshorne said.
I’m not sure I’d call that relaxed pose a retreat … but clearly Iker is not going to solve Spokane’s turkey problem.
