A turkey has come up with a cunning plan to avoid ending up on a Thanksgiving plate this year. Unfortunately her plan isn’t going too well so far.
Management at Landa Park in New Braunfels, Texas, said they do not know the origins of a wild turkey that has showed up and appears to have joined up with a flock of geese.
Bojack Jalowy, operations manager for the Park in New Braunfels, said the large female turkey was first spotted at the park in July and has since been seen “hanging out” with geese and being fed by park visitors.
Jason Hardin, Texas Parks and Wildlife’s turkey program leader, told reporters that it was unusual to see a wild turkey in a populated area. It is even more unusual to spot one of the birds without other turkeys around.
“They’re very gregarious” Hardin said. “They tend to stay in flocks.”
