  1. The 2018 spring hunting season opens on April 30 and runs through May 26. Hunt begins at sunrise and ends at noon. Just in time for lunch.

  2. these turkeys have no respect for the neighborhood. they just move in, act like they own the place for a few years, and then return to the suburbs. this neighborhood was a lot nicer before all these turkeys arrived. these turkeys would never have gotten away with any of their current antics back in 1985. turkey scum.

  3. I don’t mean to come off as incompassionate but I believe residents/property owners should be allowed to destroy these turkeys as they are are allowed (and encouraged) to destroy pests and rodents.

    They are invasive and quite frankly can become aggressive and quite dangerous. Is it legal for residents/property owners to kill these turkeys?

    1. I would doubt very much that it is legal to kill these turkeys. I agree that they can be aggressive and are everywhere in this city.It is getting almost impossible to walk the Charles River any longer the geese and their droppings are everywhere and it is worse than ever.

    2. I think there is line that defines which pests can be eliminated. Fowl are above the line. Unfortunately, so are the foul pests.

  4. These turkeys have multiplied in every city,, be thankful that the coyotes haven’t come over the Charlestown bridge yet,,, these turkeys are very aggressive and mean,, I’m not sure on laws if any 9ne can kill them,, the animal control officer won’t do anything in Malden in his words let nature take its course,,maybe they will start to congregate over the business district,, just walk away from them ,, viscous ,, mean ,, crazy birds

    1. There was an article about a woman that was attacked by a gang of them. I was told that males are solitary and females travel in packs. Seems the females are the ones with anger issues.

  5. I recently visited a loved one at Woodlawn Cemetery in Everett and could not believe my eyes.Wild turkeys were everywhere and some were enormous as well as aggressive and fearless.
