A blue heron perches on an island in the Humber just south of the Lawrence Avenue bridge in Cruickshank Park today.
A wild turkey was grazing quietly today in Cruickshank Park.
Two of us were photographing the rare sight when a large white dog got loose from its owner and chased the turkey down the length of the park, its flexi-leash flailing after it. The turkey and dog were last seen heading south. Fortunately, wild turkeys can fly and the two of them disappeared towards the river.
The owner’s response was, “That f***ing dog”. Mine was, “That f***ing owner”. According to another dog owner, this particular dog is allowed to run loose quite often.
