Turkey breaks into Mich. home, makes mess

May 18, 2011 12:00:00 AM PDT
What sounded like a burglar turned out to be a gobbler wreaking havoc in a Michigan home.

Darlene Fochtman was sitting in her living room in Comstock Park when she heard a loud crashing noise.

It turned out that a wild turkey had smashed through a basement window and started tearing things apart.

"It blew glass through the front window, probably between 12 and 15 feet into the room, so there are shards of glass everywhere, feathers, poo and papers. It's a mess," Fochtman described.

Fochtman's husband eventually came home from work and chased the turkey out of their home.
