Oregon town seeks solutions to wild turkeys, their droppings
September 8, 2017
PILOT ROCK, Ore. (AP) — A small Oregon city is asking the state for advice on how to handle a flock of wild turkeys that are ruining gardens and leaving droppings just about everywhere.
Officials in Pilot Rock, a city of 1,500 people about 230 miles (370 kilometers) east of Portland, say there are dozens of turkeys roaming the area, the East Oregonian reported (http://bit.ly/2f7HLHp).
City Councilor Bob Deno complained he has 15 birds frequenting a tree on his property.
Resident Mary Ann Low told a city council meeting Tuesday that she once counted 68 turkeys in her mother's yard.
