This might be the best tweet of the day, I think it won't ruffle any feathers.....Turkey on the loose in the Eglinton & Centennial Park Blvd area. Yes, a turkey on a #toronto street https://t.co/KwZU8EROrj— Irene Preklet (@Irene680NEWS) February 18, 2021
A spokesperson from the City of Missisauga told blogTO, "...intentional wildlife feeding is causing the wild turkey to act aggressively with members of the public."

There's not much the City can do to remove the bird, since the area is considered wildlife feeding area, but after this most recent incident, it appears 311 has been called to the scene.
