Why are the turkeys crossing the runway in Gatineau?
from Ottawa Citizen
Small aircraft at the Gatineau Airport have hit one wild turkey and come within a drumstick on three other occasions in less than two weeks. There's been no damage to turkeys (as far as anyone can tell) or people. A veteran Ottawa pilot says turkeys on runways are fairly routine, and pilots who keep their eyes open shouldn't get into trouble. Adult male wild turkeys can weigh up to 10 or 11 kilograms, females about half that.
