Booming turkey population ruffling feathers in urban communities

Activities and Exhibits

In the dark of night, the intruder smashed a plate glass window of a dessert shop in Lincoln, Neb. Inside, destruction.

The first cop called for backup. The two officers, guns drawn, warily entered the shop.

In a back room, they found the perp, angry and ready to fight, but a little on the smallish side. It was a 25-pound wild turkey.

"The police came outside and were laughing hysterically," says High Society Cheesecake co-owner Marcus Morris, who'd arrived at 11:30 p.m. to start baking for the next day, April 1. "The turkey had gone crazy. I started calling friends to tell them what had happened. Everyone thought it was an April Fool's joke."

Americans, prepare yourselves. The wild turkey is back in vast numbers and may be coming soon to a garage, backyard or windshield near you.
