Intruder Turns Out To Be Turkey

By Robert Paul Reyes

"Police in Missouri said an intruder reported by a man who arrived home to a broken window and noise coming from his basement turned out to be a turkey.

The Ballwin Police Department said Kevin Corrigan called 911 after arriving home to find broken glass on the floor and the counter near his back door and hearing sounds coming from his basement."



If I came home and found a broken window and noises coming from my basement, I would grab a tire iron from my car or the gun from my bedroom, and investigate myself. To hell with the cops, they are only good for insurance purposes: An insurance company won`t pay up unless you file a police report.

I bet the cops looked down on this guy as a chicken, when they found out that the culprit was a turkey. The cops deal with a lot of turkeys in their profession, but most of them are of the human variety.

The turkey had broken a window to enter the home, the turkey seems unruffled, he was uninjured having lost only a couple of feathers.

The bird was released by the cops, but the homeowner should have been arrested for being such a chicken.
