Turkey aggression

Owen Conservation Park is a 93-acre wonderland on the west side of Madison, Wis. A hilltop prairie with surrounding oak savannas, the park has a lovely view of the state capitol. In spring, woodcocks are known to engage in their courtship display here.

In a stunning development, turkeys at idyllic Owen Conservation Park are also attacking hominids. Regular visitors know that this also is happening in the Twin Cities area. Officials attribute the Owen Park attacks to the enthusiasm of the breeding season.
