Hi! My turkey died last Friday. He was a one year old blue slate gobbler and he was the only turkey we had. We were going to get him a hen but he didn't make it that far. He was just a pet and we loved him so much! We found him stranded from the flock plucked of every feather he had (looked like he was ready for Thanksgiving dinner) and had a huge cut under his wing along with other small injuries. He was walking but falling down, and I picked him up and carried him into a pen we have. He had bugs in his wounds and was in a lot of pain. We made an extremely difficult decision to shoot him and put him out of his misery. He would have died a slow death anyway, so we thought it was best. We looked in the woods to see what could have done this to him, and we found all his feathers. There was snow on the ground, so all the tracks that were there was turkey tracks. We had evidence it was wild turkeys because they have been hanging around a lot and we found a turkey beard that was not his. We would love to get another turkey gobbler along with some hens, but after this happening I am hesitant. Has anybody ever had this problem? What did you do to solve it? Thanks!
