Turkeys have teeny-weeny brains, but they are still able to sense that the holiday season is upon them and seek revenge. You’ll need all your wits, strength, and speed if you encounter one of these big angry birds. So get out there and exercise!
From Maine to Mexico, turkey encounters are on the rise. Some folks theorize that turkeys attack during mating season. Others think it’s because they see their reflections in shiny car bumpers. They peck, they scratch, they flap their wings. One thing is for sure, turkeys have a top speed of 20 mph, which makes them faster than many people.
We Have Forks
Yes, turkeys may be terrorizing some neighborhoods, but human beings can deal with it. We have forks. Lots of Las Vegas restaurants offer Christmas dinner, complete with roasted turkey.
Delicious dining, including turkey and all the trimmings, is available city-wide. Stay at Las Vegas RV Resort, bring your doggie, and have a great time on Christmas Day and every day. Thanks for being our friend!
