Not everyone is celebrating the return of the wild turkeys.Complaints about troublesome turkeys have surged in Boston and its suburbs over the past three years, causing headaches for police and health officials called to handle problems, according to city and town records provided to The Associated Press. Boston city officials say they received at least 60 complaints last year, a threefold increase over the year before. "Now it's starting to spread into communities all around Boston".Often the grievance is little more than a wayward turkey blocking traffic, but in at least five cases turkeys became so aggressive that police said they had to shoot them as a matter of public safety. Not far from two sites where turkeys were shot by police, Brookline resident Suzette Abbott says she's had no problems with the turkeys that roam her block.
