A real turkey

Apublic policy issue for Philomath: What exactly do you do when turkeys - the animal kind - overrun your town?

That's what they're grappling with. From an AP story on the situation: "About 20 of the big birds hang out in west Philomath, scratching or tearing up landscaping and roofs, leaving calling cards on lawns and decks and making noise during the early morning, fish and wildlife officials say."

Chase them off? (Been tried.) Kill them? (Maybe the last resort.) Or is there another option?
