Canoeist Struck by Turkey?

That isn’t a headline I can say I have seen before.  Near Ely, MN, a wild turkey flew out of the woods and struck a vehicle with a canoe on top of it. The windshield broke and the man thought the turkey would fly off but it got tangled in the rope tying the canoe down. He was eventually able to cut it loose and set it free. I didn’t realize they had wild turkeys in Ely!

Paul Pengal works to free a tangled turkey that got caught up in the ropes of a canoeist traveling near Winton this week.
