wild turkey.

No… I have not taken up drinking. Don’t worry. Or celebrate.


Imagine my surprise when I returned home from a coffee run to find this large creature in my front yard—way too close to the door of my house. I was afraid to get out of the car until it walked away… then I ran inside. Do wild turkeys attack? I didn’t want to find out.

Of course, I went back out and followed it to the back corner of my yard to take a picture. There were two smaller ones, too… but they didn’t make it into the picture…

That’s about the extent of my excitement for today.

Scary-ass giant turkey.

Seems about right.

    If you want to scare them away without hurting them, place a bowl of stuffing and some cranberry sauce out in your yard. 😉

    I love Rob’s solution! 😂 Anyway, we have lots of wild turkeys around – they’re very skittish and I’ve never heard of an attack. Now Canada geese on the other hand are a menace. I had one come after my dog one day in the park! And my dog is a husky mix!

  3. Hahaha! No, I’m pretty sure they won’t attack. They piss themselves if they even hear a cricket chirp. I almost hit one crossing my driveway a few mornings ago. Came right outta the field in front of me. Not the brightest critters. 🙂

    Funny! I needed this laugh… thank you! I am scared of wild animals too… I usually think 🤔 … what if they have a spreadable disease or something? 😬

  6. He looks pretty big to me! We have geese here that will just walk in front of your car and can’t e hurried for anything. I would’ve waited in the car, too!

    They’re fine until one decides he is a peacock. Then they get a proud and strutty and stuff.
