These Are Just As Hazardous As Deer.

According to the La Porte County Sheriff’s Office the Taraboczhia family from Emerson, New Jersey had just left Notre Dame where their daughter Riana was just accepted… as they traveled west on US 20 in La Porte County a wild turkey flew into the path of their rental vehicle. The wild turkey was impaled in the center of the windshield.

The 30 pound Tom was killed on impact and fortunately the family only suffered minor cuts from the glass.

Mating season for wild turkeys means that they are often on the move and can be as hazardous as deer.
