Hi, this is why I hate hunters. The person who killed this turkey should be arrested for animal execution. Killing an animal that is close to being domesticated is NOT hunting.

That depends on where "RUFUS" was bagged. If Rufus was out in the countryside away from the restaurant, then the hunter would not have been able to distinguish him from any other turkey. Of course, if Rufus was hanging around the restuarant parking lot - that is another matter.
