Anxious Turkey Breaks Into Home On Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving turkeys usually get carried in through the front door. But this one came crashing through the dining room window.

On Thursday, Sandy Cobbs she was in her kitchen in Bloomington, Minnesota, preparing sweet potatoes and vegetables when she heard a thunderous crash.

Her husband tried to shoo the bird back outside, but it bounced off more windows and tried to hide in a big pot of orchids. Police finally herded it onto the deck.

It's happened to the Cobbs before. Bloomington police say another wild turkey came through the same window on Christmas Day in 2004.

Sandy Cobbs doesn't think it's funny and says her insurance company doesn't, either. The first turkey attack cost nearly ten-thousand dollars.
