What has changed in the past several decades is the amount of automobile traffic on our roads. In an effort to keep our wild and domestic animals and our wild and domestic drivers apart, there are road signs placed in the areas where animals regularly cross or come near roadways.
We have deer crossing signs, and cow crossing signs, and geese crossing signs. Maybe we need one of these, too.
Just a few days before Thanksgiving, I spotted this turkey on the north side of Triangle Road.
I wasn't sure which way he was headed - and I'm not sure he was either - until he decided to make a run for it.
With barely a pause to look both ways, he was across the westbound lanes and on the median.
Narrowly avoiding one car, he made it safely to the other side.
Why did the turkey cross the road? I'm not sure, but I think it had something to do with that Chicken Holiday van!
