Chenoa Mayor Defends Turkey Shootings

A lot of folks in Chenoa aren't buying the explanation from their mayor that shooting a handful of wild turkeys was the right thing to do. Mayor Chris Wilder on Monday said not only was he right to order the shooting of the birds because they were a nuisance, but he had permission from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources. Neighbors say just because DNR okayed taking the birds, they have to wonder why a non-Chenoa employee shot at the birds with a handgun during the middle of the day last Saturday about a block from a crowded public school.
