It would be funny if it weren't so serious. Then again, it's a little of both. After all, as Mel Brooks said, "Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you fall into an open sewer and die."
According to the article the turkeys are endangered (turkeys? endangered?) so Animal Control can't just kill them. There's talk of having a meeting to decide what to do, and maybe to relocate them to someplace where there aren't children.
I have a suggestion. Brookline has been feeding the turkeys for years. It's now their turn to feed us.
Early Thanksgiving, anyone?
(In his post about the turkeys, blogger Andy Carvin has put up a video of Brookline's turkeys, for those who wish to see them in action as they terrorize our town.)
