Why Did These Turkeys Not Cross The Road?

20 very stubborn turkeys stand their ground -- in the middle of Highway 38 -- and this caused a little conflict with a motorist.

Do we have another turkey-gate brewing?

About 20 turkeys were reportedly found in the middle of the road at 5:34 p.m. Saturday in the 6300 block of Highway 38.

The motorist told police he was driving in the area and had to swerve around the stubborn turkeys to get around them. However, when police responded to the area, the birds were gone.

This isn't the first time turkeys have been a problem in .

In December, into their garages and caused traffic back-ups in the 5800 block of Erie Street. The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources issued a permit to the  to shoot the birds.

The two turkeys ran into the roadway and started pecking at the officer’s police squad. A few minutes later they began to follow the police squad near the south playground area by Olympia Brown. When the officer got out of the car, the turkeys started attacking the officer and he shot them with his shotgun.

A number of residents were upset with how the Village handled the situation.
