Wild Turkey Calls New Jersey Supermarket Parking Lot Home

Maybe because it's April and not November, but life has been good for a wild turkey that calls a North Jersey supermarket parking lot home.

Shoppers and workers at the A&P in Closter have been leaving bread and blueberries for the young turkey known as Tom-Tom.

Butcher Carlos Henriquez told The Record newspaper the turkey is attracting new customers.

The state Fish and Wildlife Division said Tom-Tom is a young male, known as a jake.

Experts said the bird could become aggressive as he grows older and starts showing off to attract a mate. 

Experts said people should stop feeding the wild turkey.
