LOCAL OFFICIALS ISSUE PUBLIC APPEAL FOR HELP IN RELOCATING TURKEYS

Assemblywoman Nicole Malliotakis, State Senator Andrew Lanza, Borough President James Oddo, and Councilman Steven Matteo are looking for suitable new homes for the population of wild turkeys now inhabiting Ocean Breeze and its adjacent neighborhoods.  

The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) recently issued permits for the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) to perform a capture-removal operation, resulting in relocation of a portion of the birds to the Catskill Animal Sanctuary in Saugerties, New York.  Due to the limited space at the sanctuary, however, a number of the turkeys had to be slaughtered for food processing.
