This is the face of a Christmas Eve turkey killer.
I just finished up an easy 4 mile run when I heard noises. I was about 3 houses away from home when I saw them. Two wild turkeys.
They are not unfamiliar with our neighborhood but I have always kept my distance. Not today.
One came charginging at me. I didn’t know what to do so I stopped. It stopped. I walked. It walked. I ran. It ran. I stopped again.
The turkey was about 2 feet away from me. I had to make a decision: try to kick it or spray it with mace. I reached in my pocket, grabbed my mace and started spraying. The turkey started walking toward me. I kept spraying. It finally turned around went back with its friend.
Does anyone know what happens to a maced turkey?!
