Illegal Releases Threaten Wild Turkey Populations

The North Carolina Wildlife Resources Commission restocks and relocates wild turkeys to suitable habitats. These activities have brought the state's wild turkey population to a forty-year-high. Several counties recently reported the finding of pen-raised turkeys in their fields and woodlands. Release of pen-raised birds can spread disease to the wild stock as well as weaken their ability to survive in the wild by interbreeding.
