North Asheville Turkeys Reproduce

The good news: This rafter of turks lives in my hood and they eat all the nasty bugs out of my garden every morning.

The bad news: They've also eaten my hostas and my strawberries.

The good news: they give my cats the chance to pretend they are safari lions.

The bad news: There are six adolescent turkeys and three babies in this group. This is only one of several North Asheville wild turkey rafters. One contains about twenty-five adults and regularly blocks traffic on Kimberly Avenue.

More bad news: Their only true local predators are bears.

Throw some in your mini-van and cart 'em over to West Asheville. We'll show 'em a good time!
