The article focuses on an aluminum band on which the words RETURN TO NYS DEPT ENV. CONS ALBANY 12201 were inscribed. The band was found by Rensselaer County resident Lynn Rowley. Her curiosity led her to send an e-mail to the New York Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC), which was received by Tom Sutter, a principal fish and wildlife technician in Albany. Research made by Tom on the aluminum band revealed that it was one of the tags placed on three adult female turkeys and eight poults on September 12, 1974.
