    Wild Turkey Calls New Jersey Supermarket Parking Lot Home
    Monday, June 25th, 2012

    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.
