Wilson on Outdoors: Irksome wild turkeys bother neighborhood

Q: I live in the San Francisco East Bay, and in my neighborhood there has been an explosion in the numbers of wild turkeys roaming freely. They are causing havoc wherever they go! These birds destroy flower beds and yards with their endless search for food. They relieve themselves frequently, leaving a mess able to be tracked into peoples’ residences and family vehicles. A child’s toys may even come into contact with their biological waste. These turkeys travel in large groups. I have even counted two separate groups numbering 25 large turkeys. They don’t have many natural predators except maybe larger dogs, but the turkeys steer clear of those yards. Cats only fear them. The only predator that can make a difference is man. Any suggestions?
