However, knowing that a male turkey can reach 125 cm in length and 11 kg in weight, you will understand why nobody wanted to get too close to it!”It’s kind of an odd request,” Mrs. Peterson, of Shorewood, Minnesota, told 911 emergency services over the phone on Sunday.
Barry Peterson and his wife had just come home from a trip to find the front window of their home bashed in.Coming home we noticed a window had been smashed in. We discovered a wild turkey in our family room. The police came to the rescue. See what happens!
Hey, buddy,” the cop said, snapping some pictures before putting on his gloves.Despite the shattered glass and inconvenience, everyone had a good sense of humor about the intruder.”The wild turkey left the home on his own and found a better spot in an oak tree,” the police said . “The wild turkey was not injured.”
