Forest Lawn Is For Turkeys

BRO reader submission by Evan who has apparently discovered one of the wild turkeys roaming about at the Forest Lawn Cemetery. Great photos Evan! The turkeys do call the cemetery home and hopefully keep the lonely deer company. From Evan:

The other day I was in Forest Lawn Cemetery and found by the Darwin Martin memorial a full grown turkey wandering around. I could not come up with any reasonable way for the turkey to have gotten there, so I just snapped some photos and moved on.

I know in the past you guys have done articles regarding urban farming and thought that maybe the turkey potentially escaped from one of these farms. So I thought who better to ask than BRO if any farms in the city happened to lose a turkey recently (who knows, maybe they could even get it back from there).

The pictures aren’t great, but hey, maybe someone out there really loved that turkey and would recognize it.
