Turkey's trip goes afowl

A brazen turkey broke into a Putnam Street garage Monday, suffering several broken bones before dying. 

Police were called to the home at about 2 p.m., after neighbors noticed an enormous dent and a hole in a vacationing couple’s garage door.

“One of the males looked through the opened panel and he said a large ‘bird’ was flapping its wings,” a Sandusky police report said. “I checked the door and used the duty flashlight to check the inside of the garage and I was able to see a full-grown male turkey.”

Police called in state wildlife officers, who snared the bird following a brief tussle. The turkey was a domestic bronze breed.
