CLOSTER, N.J. (AP) - Maybe because it’s April and not November, but life has been good for a wild turkey that calls a northern New Jersey supermarket parking lot home.

Shoppers and workers at the A&P; in Closter have been leaving bread and blueberries for the young turkey known as Tom-Tom.

Butcher Carlos Henriquez tells The Record (http://bit.ly/1bd9Ms7 ) newspaper the turkey is attracting new customers.

The state Fish and Wildlife Division says Tom-Tom is a young male, known as a jake.

Experts say he could become aggressive as he grows older and starts showing off to attract a mate.

Experts say people should stop feeding the wild turkey.
