Troubled turkey or friendly fowl?

For the past year and a half a turkey has showed up at a bus stop in Charlotte, North Carolina and chased buses. Now folks there are starting to wonder why.

Some residents simply believe the turkey just does not like the bus. However, others have a much more romantic theory.

"He did have a mate and she just kind of disappeared," said one resident. "So we thought that one morning she hopped on the bus. And he's been waiting for her ever since."

Thankfully residents don't seem to mind and say the turkey has become sort of a neighborhood mascot.
