Turkey Crashes Through Video Store Window.

Bird Left Droppings On Hunting Videos

April 16, 2002

BATAVIA, N.Y. -- It's not unusual for film reviewers to describe bad movies as "turkeys" -- but it's not often that a turkey bashes movies.

That's what happened recently in western New York.

Nancy Arena arrived at her Batavia video store the other day to find the front window smashed. Feathers and movie cases were scattered everywhere.

She called police. When the officer arrived, he flushed a young tom turkey out of the science fiction section.

An animal control officer eventually took the 12-pound bird away.

Arena said the episode "was kind of weird" because the turkey apparently went after the hunting videos first -- and left some droppings on them.

Spring is mating season for turkeys, and wildlife experts said the video-store crasher may have been looking for love -- or at least dinner and a movie.
