Walmart Greeter Fired Because of Wild Turkey

A wild turkey got an 88 year old Walmart greeter fired this past week. Yes, you read that right a wild turkey and we are not talking about the bourbon. An actual wild turkey wondered into a Wisconsin Walmart on March 27 th when Bob Tallinger was on duty as a greeter.

According to WISN the employees corralled the bird into the outdoor garden section, where a Humane Animal Welfare Society official was called in and ultimately was able to capture the bird by luring it into a net. The turkey was able to be released into the wild unharmed.

A few days after the incident Bob found out he was fired. I guess since he was the guy at the door it was his fault the turkey got in. They told him that he should have ran and got a manager when the turkey came in the store.

His wife, Janet Tallinger, said her husband’s termination is unfair.

“He was hired to be a greeter and that’s what he did. He never saw a book of rules that said if a wild turkey comes in here you better run and get management,” she said. “Granted he’s gotten older and granted he’s lost a little memory but nevertheless that hasn’t prevented him from being an excellent greeter.”
