A CYNICAL LOOK AT THE DAILY GRIND

UP TO YOUR TURKEY NECK IN ... TURKEYS?

A Port Republic woman has been haunted this Halloween by some goblins of a different kind ... a gang of turkeys.


Kim Allen says she has been trying for weeks to get rid of the more than 40 turkeys living in two sycamore trees outside her restored Victorian home.

All their gobbling didn't bother her, but raking and cleaning up the turkey poop people tracked inside her home did.

She sprayed the birds with water, set off firecrackers and banged together pots and pans to scare them away. The birds stayed, though, until recently when the leaves fell off the trees and, losing their cover, the "gobble-lins" moved on.

Now they are hiding out at a nearby hunting lodge.

Sounds like the gang that couldn't poop straight.
