Turkey Breaks Into Store, Trashes Hunting Videos

BATAVIA, N.Y. (AP) -- A turkey recently decided to take a turn as a critic, attacking movies in a video store and taking particular aim at hunting videos.

Nancy Arena arrived at her video store 30 miles east of Buffalo last week to find the front window smashed and feathers and movie cases scattered everywhere.

She called police, and when the officer arrived at the store, he flushed a young tom turkey out of the science fiction section.

An animal control officer eventually took the 12-pound bird away.

Arena says the episode "was kind of weird" because the turkey bashed into the hunting videos first and left some droppings on them.

Spring is mating season for turkeys, and wildlife experts say the video-store crasher may have been looking for a feathered companion among the video displays.
