Last we heard, the USDA had trapped hundreds of wild geese in Jamaica Bay for slaughter. Now, they have their sights set of the wild turkeys of Staten Island. Beginning yesterday,the USDA has lured the turkeys to their death using pellets to attract them to large nets, capturing and crating them for removal. GooseWatchNYC and community leader John Mancuso are holding an emergency rally tomorrow at noon to protest the USDA’s cruel actions.
