If they're hanging out on a gold course wouldn't they make great bouillon?

Weren't pigs traditionally fed human feces? What did that bacon taste like?



Gold = Golf...

I have no idea about the pigs. I though they were just fed left overs: everything from table scraps to coffee grounds.

Someone eventually will probably think they might taste good. Wild Turkey Recipes!

The one I saw was a male and it was pretty big. I guess he has been eating well.

I guess the turkey sightings show how civilized JC is. One of my favorite anecdotes is not long after Laotian Hmong refugees were settled in a Minnesota town people noticed there were fewer ducks in the town pond. The Hmong couldn't imagine a reason not to take some of those tame tasty ducks. They would just come right over if you threw them some bread!

Driving towards the A&P on Saturday, there was a wild turkey in the grass lot adjacent to the Lackawanna Warehouse. It was only a foot or so away from a little girl who was standing on the opposite side of a chain link fence.

The turkey apparently had little fear of people.

I wonder what the turkeys are eating in Jersey City?

From personal experience I'd rank skunks 1, turkeys 2, bears 3, deer 4 when it comes to fearing personal safety from my experience. Turkeys are really aggressive, but I always figured I could take one on. I've had cat sprayed by skunks, and it's ugly. Twice I've encountered bears, and they ran away. Deer just eat my hostas and piss me off. I guess I'd have to add the squirrels who ate the hundreds of fall flowering crocus bulbs I planted one August. Bastids.

No, not the whiskey


There have been turkeys living on Newark Ave., under the turnpike, for years.

Yes! I saw that, in Morristown Green. He was an odd bear, he did not seem to be afraid of people and was too close for comfort.

They had a pretty big black bear in the Green in Morristown yesterday, a turkey in JC isn't surprising, although turkeys can be more aggressive than bears.
