Wild turkey crashes into restaurant on Thanksgiving


PENN HILLS, Pa. -- A wild turkey apparently flew into an Eat'n Park restaurant on -- of all days -- Thanksgiving.

The 15-pound turkey was found among a pile of shattered glass on the carpet near some booth tables around 3 p.m.

Nobody was inside the restaurant on Frankstown Road, which was closed for the holiday.

Penn Hills police Officer Bernard Sestili responded when the building's alarm went off. He said the turkey flew into the window and was not thrown.

"Probably was roosted in one of the trees in this wooded area back here, got up this morning and went for his morning flight and flew into the window," Sestili said. "Fighting back, on Thanksgiving -- how ironic."
