Urban Turkeys
A police officer gently eases her patrol car through an intersection in Staten Island, Monday, Nov. 11, 2013, in New York in a neighborhood where a large population of feral turkeys have established residence. The roving turkeys have become a mess-making, traffic-stopping scourge to some residents, an unexpected bit of makeshift nature to others and a fraught project for government officials. Since dozens of the turkeys were rounded up and killed this summer, the birds’ future has become as a topic as heated as a Thanksgiving meat thermometer. (AP Photo/Kathy Willens)
