Today is Animal Day on “06880.”
Hot on the heels of an albino squirrel, we’ve got a wild turkey terrorizing Westport drivers.
Alert “06880” reader Mark Jacobs took this photo this morning, near Birchwood Country Club:
Mark says he (the turkey) attacked half a dozen vehicles, pecking at tires.
It’s the same animal Mark saw (and photographed) earlier this month:
I contacted Westport Animal Control. They said the state has been informed, and will (eventually) relocate the bird. Unless someone runs him over first.
Apparently he is a regular highwayman. I’m curious what set him off.
Maybe a discourteous, entitled Westport driver flipped him the bird.
