On Sunday afternoon, residents of a home in the Town of West Bend heard a "commotion" from inside an upstairs bedroom.Then again, on second thought, maybe it was.
They cracked open the door and were startled to see a turkey on the bed.
The homeowners called sheriff's deputies, who arrived five minutes later to find the turkey "destroying" the bedroom, according to a popular post on the department's Facebook page.
The turkey had broken through a second-story window. Deputies had a "plan to safely take the bird into custody without knocking the stuffing out of it," wrapped the bird in a blanket and took it outside.
"Although the deputies suspected fowl play, the turkey was released from custody with no charges," officials joked in the Facebook post.
