Thanksgiving open thread
One portion: The restoration of the wild turkey here in Vermont is thanks to tax dollars and a government run program.
The wild turkeys we see in Vermont today originated from just 31 wild turkeys stocked in Rutland County by the Vermont Fish & Wildlife Department in 1969 and 1970. Vermont’s forest habitat was once again capable of supporting turkeys. State wildlife biologists moved groups of these birds northward, and today Vermont’s population of turkeys is estimated to be about 50,000.
