Strange things seen in Maynard, Episode 6: Any Turkey Can Use a Treadmill!

I was downtown around dinnertime Tuesday evening and saw a cruiser outside Aim for Fitness. People walking in that area seemed to be drawing toward the scene. I saw broken glass and a big hole in the top of one of the windows. Had some vandal thrown a cinder block? Did an over enthusiastic fitness buff push themselves just a little too hard? Nope. It turns out that a wild turkey had flown right through the window!

Animal control went in with a net to capture the wild bird, who, for a few minutes, had landed on a treadmill. According to my source, the turkey seemed to be unharmed. Hopefully she (maybe he?) is recovering from the shock and can get back to the wild soon.
