Turkey Quietly Aging Like It Owns the Freakin' Place

The Downtown Express updates us on the status of Zelda, Battery Park City's favorite non-liquidy wild turkey: "Park rangers have advised the conservancy to let Zelda be and that she’ll stay as long as things are going well. A Wisconsin tourist who has wild turkeys told [Battery Conservancy director Pat] Kirshner that they typically live to be about 8, which may mean Zelda is nearing the end of her golden years in the park. Kirshner has noticed age creeping up on Zelda. 'She's a little less shiny, a little less fluffy,' said Kirshner." [Downtown Express, previously]
