What Happened To The Terrible Wild Turkeys Terrorizing Toms River, NJ?
Do you remember the trials and tribulations of the dozens and dozens of turkeys that infiltrated Holiday City and other parts of Toms River in the fall of 2019? They were everywhere including lawns, streets, and even on roofs of homes. There were videos, viral Tweets, and Facebook banter galore. 18 months later, what's happened?
"Watch A Toms River Community Terrorized By Wild Turkeys" read one of the stories. It was a time of both fear AND comedy. I mean, there was something funny about people being trapped in their homes or cars because a flock of birds was outside. Maybe you remember this story on ABC 7?
Even this past fall (2020) in my Bayville neighborhood I encountered some wild turkeys. Now, I haven't seen one in months. Have they retreated to the Pinelands or other local habitats? Do you know?
