Only In Northern Colorado....

 ....Do you hear a radio call to the Larimer County Humane Society to respond to a motor vehicle accident involving a wild turkey.

The dispatcher said "The driver said it was a BIG one, and all he could see were feathers flying everywhere".

No word on the condition of the turkey.....

  1. LOL - I suspect if there were feathers flying everywhere that the turkey is roadkill.

  2. I've seen a lot of turkeys on the road, but they weren't the feathered kind.

  3. Did somebody frickasee the bird? The humane society responded to road kill?

    We have a lot of wild turkeys in Northern Arizona and a turkey season. When I was 7 1/2, I killed my first dear in AZ during turkey season but that's another story). In any event, hitting a big tom would put a dent in a rig without an aftermarket steel bumper - which is why many of us have those on our trucks.

    1. They also responded to a call about a wild turkey with an arrow in it. Bad shot, maybe?
      I don't think I've ever seen a wild turkey, except for the bottled kind. WSF keeps recommending I get a "brush buster" bumper for my Colorado, just in case.

  4. It could always be worse. Many years ago when I carried a badge in a small Missouri town, we had a near-fatality when a cow fell out of a tree onto a passing car. Turns out the cow had wandered too close to the edge of a bluff, and got stuck in a tree on the way down. Temporarily.

    1. OK, "Cow In A Tree" beats "Turkey In The Road" any day!
      Hope all is well with you, Rev!

  5. Deep fried in engine oil is NOT the recommended way to cook one...
