“Knock, knock.” “Who’s there?” “Turkey”

They’re out there, blocking traffic, invading front porches, hiking the banks of the South Platte and the Poudre rivers in Greeley.

Wild turkeys. Maybe wild and crazy turkeys, judging from their recent behavior.

Early Wednesday morning, two turkeys stopped traffic along 5th Street in east Greeley, challenging the drivers and sometimes block-

ing the road as people drove to work.

In addition to stopping traffic, the turkeys are getting more bold. Recently, one east Greeley family reported a turkey knocking on their front door. They called animal control officers.

Turkey goes to church the hard way

Turns out there was no need for window dressing after all. The confused wild turkey that smashed into a window at the Lubbock county courthouse Monday was laid out for a while, but eventually was able to fly away. It left a turkey-shaped hole in the glass, but otherwise caused no major damage.
