South San Francisco, CA March 17, 2017 from our FB
UPDATE BELOW FROM SSFPD 4.25.2017
When our South City neighbor, Alex Cheung, sent us this photo of wild turkeys roaming Westborough we just couldn’t believe it and shared it on our social media ‘Wild turkeys in #SSF? Has anyone else ever witnessed such a thing in South City?’ With over 200 likes and more than 25 shares we knew this wasn’t a common occurrence. However our Westborough neighbor had said they did contact SSFPD on the non-emergency line and was told the turkeys were a nuisance leaving him to believe he was not the first to take note of them here in SSF. Below are some fun comments from other neighbors:
