The reintroduction of wild turkeys to Ontario has been a sucess. Ten years ago I was seeing occasional wild turkeys over Guelph way and since then I've seen them twice at the Woolwich Dam and once on the western outskirts of Elmira. Reported sightings are now becoming commonplace. Today's K-W Record carries the following story "Wild turkeys making a comeback in the Grand River watershed". Turkeys like elk had been hunted into extinction in Ontario over a hundred years ago and although in the matter of toxins in our air. water and food, we are exceedingly slow learners it would appear that conservation of species is being taken more seriously and actually being remediated.
