Thanksgiving is still seven months away, but wild turkeys seem to be in abundance throughout Brentwood. Many photos of the local turkey flocks are showing up across social media. For those who may be new to the area, seeing wild turkeys walking near retail stores, sitting on fences or strolling down city streets seems bizarre, but wild turkeys have invaded urban areas for years. While the turkeys may be a nuisance to residents who find them on their property, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife mandates that wild turkeys can only be hunted with a license during turkey-hunting season or removed with a special permit. Homeowners experiencing property damage from wild turkeys can obtain a depredation permit from their Regional CDFW office. 

In keeping with the increase in animal populations, feral kitten season is in full swing, and according to posts on Nextdoor, fosters are needed. Fostering is a great way to enjoy the kittens for a period of time before they go on to be adopted. You can contact a local rescue group to see how you can help.
