Letter to the Editor: Stop feeding turkeys

To the editor:

As many of you are aware there are a number of wild turkeys that continually cross the road numerous times a day at the "S" turn four miles out Mill Creek Road. Lately there has been someone feeding these birds with grain and apples directly on the road. This is creating a huge traffic concern and has caused many near misses. Even though this has been a hard winter the turkeys are not starving but in fact getting fat on what they do eat. They do not need any extra feed! I would like to ask that the parties feeding these birds in the chosen location to please stop. You are creating an unsafe situation for the turkeys and especially vehicle traffic.
