Something to ponder, though....these turkeys are not native. The powers
be would be Calif. Dept. of Fish and Game, that imported turkeys from Texas
sport hunting in Calif. The damage they are doing is being documented, and
never any scientific studies done to see impact on native plants and
lawsuit from Sierra Club and CNPS to halt the turkey releases until studies
Fish and Game were STILL releasing turkeys up to 2 years ago, with no idea
Here in Lake Co, they are a definite nuisance, and destroy crops and native
InN the cast of the turkeys, it was a very bad idea....think feral pigs.
