Re: Who had an early Thanksgiving?
in my opinion the trap couldve done quite abit of damage, especially to the leg of a bird. So that could have messed with the integrity of the leg and made it easier to separate. i mean there isnt much there for padding. Ive had a crow in the past and the only thing holding it in was the achilles tendon. as for the fox, a turkey's main defense is spurs im pretty sure. if the trap had his leg tied up and the predator (couldve been alot of things) got ahold of the neck, game over. after the bird is dead the gnaw the leg til its free and off they go. Thats my take on it. Was there alot of blood in the catch circle?
The early bird gets the worm but the second mouse gets the cheese.
