ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB) — A wild turkey broke into a New York woman’s house, leaving a path of destruction in its wake.
According to the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, the Erie County woman, who was not named, heard a loud crash on March 23 and discovered the bird had smashed through an upstairs bedroom window.
She was able to confine the turkey in a bathroom. The turkey flew around the room, crashing into walls and shattering mirrors.
Two DEC officers were able to use a neighbor’s fishing net to capture the turkey. They later freed the bird outside.
The officers also helped the woman clean up the mess left by the turkey.
