MIAMI TOWNSHIP, Ohio (WXIX) - Miami Township Police say they found something “unbelievably wild” Monday evening when they were dispatched to a resident’s home.

The woman called 911 to say a turkey had flown through a “huge” basement window and entered her daughter’s playroom.

“It was insane, the noise, because the window pane is huge,” she told the call taker. “We ended up seeing him behind the couch. I mean, these turkeys are, like, four feet tall, so we just hurried up and closed the door so he wouldn’t get out.”

She continued: “He was just trying to fly out a minute ago, but the window is like half-broken down toward the bottom, there are like shards sticking out, so I don’t think he can get out.”

Bodycam footage shows a wild turkey flying into a room after it broke the windows of the woman’s home.

Officers say this was the first time they have been dispatched for a wild turkey breaking in and out of a house.

“That poor turkey though, I feel so bad for it... it’s probably hurt,” the resident said.

Officers were able to catch the large bird in a net, but when they tried to take it outside, the turkey escaped back into the room.

In one last hoorah, video shows the wild animal flying out of the same windows it broke through.
