FALMOUTH — A Mashpee man was sentenced Wednesday in Falmouth District Court to two years administrative supervision and ordered not to possess a firearm and to forfeit his license to carry a firearm, for shooting and killing a wild turkey, according to court documents.

Joseph Raftery Jr., 64, admitted to sufficient facts to discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building and to hunting and/or possessing a wild turkey in a closed season, according to court documents.

He was originally charged with discharging a firearm within 500 feet of a building and near a highway; disorderly conduct; animal cruelty; and hunting and/or possessing a wild turkey in a closed season, according to court documents.

At 9:32 a.m. on May 23 police were called to 7 Job’s Fishing Road, where police and animal control officers found a turkey carcass in the nearby woods that appeared to have been shot in the head and possibly the body, according to the report.

Several residents told police they observed a white car drive up to a flock of turkeys and some heard gunshots. The white car returned to the scene after police left, where one witness noted the vehicle’s license plate, the report says.

After locating Raftery at home, police searched his vehicle and found three guns and hunting gear. Raftery has 19 firearms registered in his name, police said.

Police obtained a warrant to enter Raftery’s home and found nine of the registered firearms and seven additional weapons not registered to Raftery, according to the police report.
