Lite kalkonhistoria från USA.
Det fanns ca 10 miljoner kalkoner i USA tror man innan européerna kom dit. Kalkonerna smakade så bra att nästan alla blev uppätna inom några generationer. På 1930-talet hade de försvunnit från 16 av de 18 stater där de höll till. Då fanns det några hundra kvar I USA. Sedan fridlystes de och nu finns det ca 7 miljoner. De har upptäckt att bland människor finns det ibland lättillgänglig mat och människor är inte farliga har de upptäckt.
Prior to the arrival of European colonists, there were believed to
be about 10 million wild turkeys inhabiting nearly every corner of
what is now the continental United States. The birds, found only in
North America, were so common, in fact, that settlers who hunted
them thought they'd never run out………Still, the misconception that
America's turkeys were plentiful continued long after they ceased to
be, and it proved nothing short of devastating. In only a few
generations, the birds were reduced to just 2 percent of their
"From a population of 10 million, we got down to no more than a couple hundred thousand continent-wide by between 1910 and 1920. Some accounts will put it lower than that," says Hughes.
"Turkeys were extirpated from 16 to 18 states from their original range by the 1930s. Where they were abundant, there were now none. In the field of wildlife biology at the time, there was a lot of concern that they would go extinct."
