Too much turkey traffic forces town to take action

Why did the turkeys cross the road?

CBC -In the town of Castlegar no one knows for sure, but folks did realize the birds were becoming a growing hazard, especially on their daily traverse of Highway 3.

So the city council commissioned a local shop to make two “Turkey Crossing” signs after learning no such signs were commercially available.

City councillor Sue Heaton-Sherstobitoff says drivers seem to be paying attention to the new signage.

“You know our tag line for Castlegar is happy ever after,” Heaton-Sherstobitoff told CBC. “We take care of our neighbours and why doesn’t that included our feathered friends.”

Between 30 and 40 wild turkeys have taken roost in a vacant lot beside Highway 3, and locals report seeing them cross the road up to four times a day.
