We’ve seen those lovable but mischievous scamps hanging out on cars or roosting in trees in past years but have you seen the Southie Turkeys lately…
We haven’t. Over in Dorchester, packs of wild turkeys have been roaming the streets the past few weeks terrorizing the neighborhood. This makes us wonder, did the Southie Turkeys get priced out and moved to Dorchester like so many South Boston residents?
The closest we’ve seen them to South Boston is over near UMass Boston and BC High – no doubt intimidating students.
So we want to know, have you seen the Southie Turkeys lately? If you have, let us know in the comments. We’re conducting our own little ornithological study.
If you do come across a rafter of turkeys, take heed. They can be mean and aggressive and here are some tips for “dealing” with them. Bottom line, treat turkeys the same way we treat a pack a teenagers, just cross the street and avoid eye contact.
And while we’re on the subject of Southie wildlife, where the hell has the Southie Coyote been? He/She is usually spotted around this time of year. Last year, the Southie Coyote basically took up residency at Moakley Park all the way through the spring. In the spring, the coyote was spotted at the “Place to Be” M Street Beach often. Southie resident and comedian Will Noonan shared some thoughts on the matter.
Maybe the Southie Coyote and Southie Turkeys are tired of the lines and the traffic in the neighborhood and have headed to the greener pastures of the suburbs? If you do see them “Caught in Southie” send us a picture.
