Dumb Turkey Stories

Luke Tonlino of Otis, Massachusetts was admittedly a bit peeved. Upon hearing some odd banging sounds coming from outside his home last week, Tonlino decided to investigate. That's when he spotted the source of the commotion--an adult gobbler. Apparently enamored with his own reflection in the bumper of Tonlino's truck, the bird strutted back and forth occasionally pecking at the high-polished chrome.

"I went inside for the camera and watched him for 5 minutes," Tonlino said. "He saw me and didn't care--until I ran him off. I was afraid he would ruin the bumper."

You hear these types of stories every spring and it still never ceases to amaze how a bird that is often so very hard to hunt can act so absolutely silly. What's the dumbest thing you've ever seen a turkey do?
