Dude Crashes When Wild Turkey Lands Inside Cab Of Manure-Hauling Truck

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A wild turkey landed inside the cab of a manure-hauling tractor trailer, startling the driver and sending the truck rolling into a ditch off a northern New York road. State police said Scott Fisher, 38, was traveling in St. Lawrence County near the Canadian border when the turkey flew in through an open window."

Usually a driver runs into a ditch when he consumes too much Wild Turkey whiskey, not because a wild turkey lands inside the cab of his truck.

A dude who hauls manure for a living shouldn`t be surprised by a wild and unexpected disaster, he more than anybody else should realize that sh** happens.

The bird lost a few feathers, but flew away unharmed. Fisher was in deep sh**, but otherwise unharmed.

Lesson to be gleaned from this story: If you haul manure for a living, it`s a foul bird and not the Bird of Paradise that`s going to pay you a visit.
