In West Bend, Milwaukee, a break-in was reported on Sunday, March 26.
The homeowners were on the first floor of their house when, suddenly, they heard a commotion upstairs.
They heard glass shattering, and inferred that someone (or something) had broken in via the second-story window.
They contacted the Washington County Sheriff’s Office, and deputies were dispatched to the location.
Deputy Scott Nauman provided a first-hand account of the stunning scene when they arrived to the home.
They went upstairs to the bedroom in question, and Deputy Scott quickly assessed the situation.
“There was glass all over the floor, glass all over the bed.”
There was also a turkey on top of the bed.
Yes, you read that correctly.
According to Deputy Scott, he had never seen something like that in 19 years on the force.
“I’ve never had a turkey in a bedroom before. Feathers everywhere. This bird was just going wild,” Scott said.
After apprehending the “trespasser,” the two deputies released him back outside.
They also posted a snarky Facebook post, describing the alleged break-in:
“The quick thinking deputies came up with a tactical entry and physical custody plan to safely take the bird into custody without knocking the stuffing out of it. Using a highly specialized detention device, more commonly known as a blanket, the deputies were able to safely extricate the unharmed turkey to the backyard.”
No charges were filed against the turkey, but, and especially come Thanksgiving time, hopefully he won’t go around breaking into houses anymore!
