That's not a smart thing to do to a kid.

Let them have a pet turkey and then have them for dinner.

Anyway humans do the same thing, you wish death on them too?

Is that cat really dead, or just hypnotising the birds to come closer? Never underestimate the power of cats.

Turkey vultures eat dead cats, not parade around them. J/S.

Unless the UK has greatly different taxonomy and animals, those are wild turkeys. Turkey vultures look rather gnarly and stooped over.

I don't know what kind of vultures ya'll have though. In the US we have turkey vultures, buzzards, and condors that would all fit the bill of "roadside scavenger".

For context....

a turkey vulture:



and a wild turkey:



They are turkeys and not turkey vultures.

Turkeys: too stupid a bird to realize that particular predator is dead... This is behavior often seen from turkeys when they find a snake or other smallish threat. They're waiting for the cat to move, then you'd see them close in and start picking at it until it was dead or fleeing.

What part of they are not native to Australia do you not understand . They have thrived in the wild and are putting the native wildlife under extreme pressure .

I agree with and though partly mentioned already in prior replies an article;


However, cats are predators to turkeys, often preying on them and their eggs. Was this cat a menace to this group of turkeys and now they are circling it as a part of a celebratory ritual?

OR, could this cat have been these turkeys' leader and now they are mourning its death? There is no evidence of turkeys performing "funerals" or rituals for the dead like other animals do, but this could be the start of something new.

-Source
May have not even been a menace to the turkeys but rather know a predator and are being cautious, protecting their location, unsure if the predator or potential is alive or dead.

Also,having this in "chit chat" won't go far as seen, rather have comments such as the following.

Dogs kill wildlife too. Are dogs native to there? Yeah, didn't think so-the Dingo isn't native originally and is in part responsible for the Tasmanian Tiger's demise.

What a gem bet you wish death on dogs too?

Here's an Aussie article for you:


But defensive cat lovers should rest assured — a new study from researchers at the University of Oxford reminds us that domestic dogs are also killers and disease-spreaders that can pose conservation problems when they're allowed to roam free outdoors.
-source

The issue isn't solely the pets fault but the owner needs to be more responsible.

Deny ignorance.

If they have gone wild yes , dogs due to their on average larger size are likely a threat to people as well , especially children . But you would be OK with that wouldn't you . Ever seen what a pack of dogs do to sheep when they attack them , no , didn't think so .They dont kill because they are hungry but because they can . Heres some light viewing for you .



Want to save that dog and have it around your kids , didnt think so . Oh , and that sheep is a lucky one , sometimes they rip their underside open then move on . Seen it so dont tell me it does not happen .

Turkey Vultures don't walk around on the ground with a gait, they just hop.

Loving dead animals no doubt one would jump at the chance to take out what is deemed as or really is dangerous animals
SMH


Moot points brought up, no reason a child should be around killer animals in the first place. I've seen what packs of dogs do as well as what Timber wolves do to not only large wild animals(Moose and Elk) but farm animals as well with not eating them.

Good then, hope you do. It's sad when people pick and choose instead of seeing all animal life should be cherished, not some.


HA ha , love dead cats ,and why .

For shame comment.

I will because not all cats, especially with good owners, have done that.

Again, deny ignorance.

Many owners don't believe their lovable kitty is a killer, but a recent study from the University of Georgia, USA, which attached cameras to 60 pets, found almost half were active hunters. It also revealed them eating roadkill, lapping at sewer water and dodging cars - providing other good reasons to keep your cat safe at home.


So half of the cats having homes kill and almost certainly all that are wild do . And its not just Australia .




It shows that free-ranging pet and feral cats in the USA kill perhaps 2.4 billion birds and 12.3 billion mammals each year, most of which are natives, rather than introduced species such as brown rats.


If you keep your cat inside i really do not have a problem with them . But kitty has to go outside for a run doesn't he .
