Another Robotic Turkey

For your Thanksgiving weekend, here is another robotic turkey.  This one is intended to stop poachers looking for a free bird.  These robotic turkeys can be remotely controlled or even programmed to move on their own.  Of course, there are other robotic animals to entice the illegal hunters.  In addition to turkeys, there are robotic deer, elk, wolves, and others. See the previous post on robotic elk for details.

"Custom Robotic Wildlife, Inc. sells robot turkeys designed to entice would-be poachers. The $1,100 dollar robot turkeys can fan their tails and bob their heads and keep doing that even after catching a shotgun blast, although after it's hit you probably want to put on a new turkey skin and wait for it. Dressing sold separately."
