    Wild animal attack NZ!

    I took my boy out on his bike yesterday. We stopped for a rest and a pair of turkeys came trundling along. They came towards us, getting closer and closer. The male took an interest in my boy. I told him to stay still and like any good modern parent, got my phone out to take a photo, then...




    In sequence...



    We were not feeding those birds, or interacting/agitating them in any way.

    Boy is fine, although I fear he made develop PTSD - post turkey stress disorder

    Maybe it's karma? This photo was taken last year...

    Mate the best thing you can do is let him eat that fucker and his mate.
    It takes 43 muscle's to frown and 17 to smile, but only 3 for proper trigger pull.
    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Would say there still too many crickets around to make them edible.

    I hope he's ok about it long term. It's illogical I know but I'm still wary all birds due to turkey attack at similar age. Can feed ducks at park but bugger going near swans, geese, turkeys etc.
