April 24, 2017 – Richfield, WI – A 55-year-old Village of Richfield man suffered minor injuries after a turkey struck the windshield on a vehicle he was operating in the 3000 block of Hwy Q on Sunday at about 1:20 p.m.
The driver was injured by flying glass. The turkey attempted to take flight from the ditch and hit the vehicle’s windshield.
A couple weeks ago deputies from the Washington County Sheriff’s Department responded to another incident involving a turkey when authorities were called to a home in the Town of West Bend for a turkey in a bedroom. Deputies used “a highly specialized detention device, more commonly known as a blanket, the deputies were able to safely extricate the unharmed turkey to the backyard.”
