Thanksgiving turkey hunters beware
November 22, 2016 9:19am CST
I am unsure as to how many people still adhere to the old traditional turkey hunt to supply Thanksgiving dinner, although it is reasonable to assume that the practice still continues. However, this year it may not be as one sided as it has been in the past. It has recently come to light that many turkeys have acquired weapons and learned how to use them. Apparently this was considered a necessity by many turkeys due to the high level of danger that they face at this time of year. Faced with a threat of potential extinction they have excelled all expectations and developed their own defence system. It is unknown just how long this practice has existed, but may be the real cause of many deaths which were previously recorded as hunting accidents.

@Asylum It's very nice and the woman hunting reminds me Sarah Palin. I remember her in an interview 5 years ago. She pardoned a turkey in anticipation of Thanksgiving at a farm. She then chatted with reporters as a cascade of turkeys was slaughtered just over her shoulder. I am sure she is a friend of Donald.

They will attack people with their gobblers (the weird hanging red part...I can't remember what it is called) their tail feathers turn into daggers, and they have sonar screeching gobbles that will knock any human down so they can claw them up. muhahaha Meanwhile, ducks are still cowering of the past and doing what they can to help their fellow birdthren.

@Asylum Nope. The authorities haven't a clue. My knowing mafia members helps me keep the supply of weapons fashioned for use by turkeys flowing. Besides, the cops take bribes from the mafia to keep this thing hush-hush.

That's a good one, Barry. I was thinking what a good job on that animation before I realized that's exactly what you were writing about. To my knowledge, here in the US, people don't hunt for turkeys much anymore. If they did there would be less of them roaming around the city and outlying areas each year. Most of us get our turkeys from the grocery stores or maybe a farmer friend.
