Gangs Of Wild Turkeys Are Causing Chaos in New Jersey

According to News 12, several areas in the Garden State, New Jersey, are having issues with bold, menacing and mannerless gangs of wild turkeys. The birds, which can grow to be 25 lbs. and can reach running speeds of 20 mph, are reportedly breaking windows, blocking roads, "pecking at cars and behaving aggressively," with one resident telling News 12 that, "Sometimes I can't get out of my car. They go to attack you."

While residents are doing their best to avoid interactions with the birds,  they are also sharing their pest problems with the world on Twitter. One of them is MLB all-star Todd Frazier who tweeted about it, saying the birds "have come close to harming my family and friends".

No More Snakes On A Plane: New Rules For Emotional Support Animals

Picture this: you're walking down the aisle in an airplane and when you find your seat, there's a turkey sitting next to it. Or a pig. Or a monkey. It sounds like a comedy routine, but it isn't. In the past few years, there has been an unprecedented rise in people having 'emotional support animals', particularly when traveling on airplanes. While any step towards improving mental health is applauded, there have been many incidents involving emotional support animals on airplanes that really don't belong there. We can't blame these untrained animals for acting the way animals act, but we can question the laws that allow them on board. With new regulations from the US Department of Transport, things are about to change. We discuss these changes below, and whether they are for the better or the worse.
