Wild turkey dies after breaking into Utah home
LONE PEAK, Utah (AP) — Police in northern Utah were surprised to learn the suspect in a reported burglary was a wild turkey.
Dave Ventrano with Lone Peak police says they received a call on July 20 from a resident in Alpine who heard a window break in the house next door. The family that lives there was out of town.
Officers searched the house and found a dead turkey lying in a pile of broken glass underneath a window on the first floor of the home.
Ventrano said the turkey died after flying through the window.
He said there are a lot of wild turkeys in Alpine.
Police gave the turkey carcass to a resident who owns a local barbecue restaurant.
