ERIE COUNTY, N.Y. (WIVB) — New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Police Officers helped out an Erie County woman after a wild turkey broke into her house and caused a mess.
The state DEC says the Erie County woman heard a loud crash on March 23 and discovered a turkey 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 and later free the bird outside.
The officers helped the woman clean up the turkey’s path of destruction.
