Police in Burlington County are reminding residents not to take action into their own hands if they encounter a wild turkey. The reminder comes as a wild turkey was spotted at a Wawa over the weekend — police say a citizen took action and contacted a wild refuge center in Delaware. However, police say you shouldn’t do this and to contact them first. They said turkeys DO roam the town and it’s also best not to feed them, especially in a Wawa parking lot.
The police say, “These animals are considered game animals and as such they are protected.”
Essentially, stick to the Gobbler at Wawa in terms of Turkey at Wawa. Ha!
