Somerville Animal Control Updates: Turkey Awareness In Somerville

Please share!

We have received many calls over the past few months regarding wild turkeys, specifically the one that hangs out on Summer St and Somerville Ave.

It is not unusual to see them in this area. For the protection of wildlife and people, Massachusetts law prohibits the capture and re-location of wildlife. If you encounter a turkey or any other type of wildlife please avoid it and allow it to go on its way. Please contact us with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
