Turkey crashes through window of home

A Wisconsin woman and her 5-year-old daughter got a fowl visitor when an unwelcome wild turkey crashed through a bedroom window. Heidi Herrera said she was watching television with her daughter Thursday when the bird quickly charged into the living room of their home in the eastern Wisconsin town of Mishicot. Herrera got her daughter and their pet Chihuahua to safety in another bedroom.

The mother then ventured out and found the turkey in the kitchen.

When she walked toward it, the bird ran out the open front door and down the street, leaving behind feathers, blood and glass scattered throughout the house.

Wildlife biologist Aaron Buchholz of the state Department of Natural Resources said turkeys can't see windows and the bird probably thought it could fly through the bedroom when it crashed through the window.
