When it is time to travel for Thanksgiving, even this crew of turkeys are getting into the act. This great picture and story of a gaggle (?) of turkeys at a New Jersey Transit station begs the question, were they fleeing the axe or heading into New York City for the Thanksgiving Parade.
Some wild turkeys, it appears, were trying to get out of New Jersey before Thanksgiving Day. A spokesman for the NJ Transit said train officials reported a dozen or so wild turkeys waiting on a station platform in Ramsey, about 20 miles northwest of New York City, on Wednesday afternoon. The line travels to Suffern, N.Y.
“For a moment, it looked like the turkeys were waiting for the next outbound train,” said Dan Stessel, a spokesman for NJ Transit. “Clearly, they’re trying to catch a train and escape their fate.”
