Bloomington, MN - 24 Nov 2006: Wild Turkey Attacks Home on Thanksgiving

A wild turkey here burst through a family's dining-room picture window and created havoc as they were preparing a Thanksgiving Day dinner.

The homeowner was in her kitchen cooking food bring to a relative when the bird crashed through the glass window. "He was huge -- two or three feet tall," she said.

Oddly, the same family experienced a similar event on Christmas Day, 2004, in a story confirmed by local police. In that incident neighbors spotted a hole in the same window, about 16 feet off the ground. The incident resulted in an insurance claim of nearly $10,000.
