Hurricane Sandy hit them hard and that is sad - but this is more sad! What is wrong with the people who are doing this???? These animals do not deserve such a fate! Killers in Staten Island - SHAME ON YOU!

Craig First of all the Turkey we eat at thanks giving are raised for human consumption free of disease hopefully these are WILD Turkeys not good for human consumption too many potential risks yes the turkeys have become a nuscence they should not be living in a populated area not good for us and not good for them . I do not see why they had to be rounded up and slaughtered!!! rounded up yes! but they could have been relocated to a wooded area and nature can take its course especially since...

I do not see why they had to be rounded up and slaughtered!!! rounded up yes! but they could have been relocated to a wooded area and nature can take its course especially since people were willing to round them up and transport for free the excuse that they could not be relocated because they were crossbreeds is ridiculous !!!! They are wild !!! of course they are crossbred they are not pedigree birds raised for pleasure or for our thanksgiving dinners its all a crock of shit! I sure hope the birds will not be sold for human consumption I for one would not want to put a potential risk on my families table

Unbelievable! Another state sponsor slaughter without trying to find a humane solution to whatever the issue is? A killing nation of elected representatives!

The USDA is being given too much authority too quickly to destroy wildlife in NYC.

Who are we to think that human life is the only form of life that matters? Animals have families, raise young and they have feelings. Maybe more than some humans do. They are not objects to be destroyed when we tire of them.

If everyone only knew why amazing, smart, and intelligent turkeys are this wouldn't be happening!!! I have domestic turkeys as pets, not food, and fell in love. Please stop this from happening!

It seems the human answer is to always kill instead of finding other humane solutions - shameful !!!
