(Yahoonews)-Is it a dark ritual or animal instinct?

A Boston man came across a chilling and puzzling scene that involved a group of turkeys and a dead cat in the middle of a road. Twitter user @TheReal_JDavis posted video of the birds slowly circling the feline’s corpse.

He told Boston magazine that since turkeys are naturally afraid of cats, it’s likely they were poking around to see if the one on the road was a threat, which is known as “predator inspection behavior.” Instead of running the other way, turkeys check to see how big the threat might be.

Turkeys are also known to follow their leader, so one bird in the group likely took on the task of inspecting the cat’s remains, while the others followed along – and they just happened to create a perfect circle.

Reminds me of an old joke:

Be thankful that the pilgrims didn't hunt cat for Thanksgiving...we'd all be eating __________ instead of turkey. If you're not sure how to fill in the blank ask Trump.






Muslims?

But I dont wanna...


I feel kind of sheepish even owning this post....just another example of poor judgment on my part.


Ahh if you can't smile, you need a new face

I am deeply disturbed by the actions of those turkeys.

I think a cat would F a turkey up in a fair fight, but my wife said hell no, turkey f a cat up.

We have 3 cats, no turkeys and a dog.

Actually it makes perfect sense. I'm not a turkey expert or anything but a guy I knew in the mountains had a wild turkey on his property that just lived there semi wild. It walked around freely with no fences or anything but chose to stay there.

While fixing a lawn mower or chainsaw or something once the damn thing kept circling me. First from a pretty good distance then would get closer and closer the more times he went around me. Eventually he'd slowly and quietly get behind me and peck at my legs. It was like he thought he'd hunt me or something. It did become irritating however after a while and I had to chase him off. The pecks kinda hurt a little too.

That's just how turkeys act. I'm guessing based off my one turkey experience and what this thread is saying.

Not sure who'd win, the cat or turkey. But what I can say is a wild turkey doesn't give a damn. I was ready to beat the crap out of that turkey that I talked about and let him know it a couple times. But sure enough, he'd come back and start circling me again and I'm a grown man. He was a grown turkey however so I guess he thought he could somehow get the upper hand.

They certainly have some balls, but I'm not so sure on the brains.

He would do stuff like that to the guy that owned the property too. It used to piss him off. That turkey was just a little a-hole sometimes.

It's a pretty big bird full grown too, but I mean what exactly did he think he'd accomplish ya know??

Peacocks are really noisy, btw. Worse than roosters.

I got beat up by a goose.
Geese are dangerous.

When people asked what happened to me, I lied and said it was geese.
It was just a pissed off goose.

I don't know.
But I've been told what's good for the goose is good for the gander.
I'm staying away from both of them from now on.

I've been attacked by a goose too. They're mean and vicious sometimes.

It scared the hell out of me too. They're fierce little guys.
