Wild Turkey Breaks Into Family’s Twin Cities Home

Written by on June 3, 2024

The odds of a wild turkey busting through a window in your home are low. But they’re never zero.

Just ask the Nipp family of Apple Valley, Minnesota.

Last Thursday, a turkey crashed through the families’ kitchen window, giving them quite the shock. The animal seemed to be stunned and stayed on the floor for about an hour. But overall, the bird wasn’t hurt.

According to CBS News:

In her near-decade of living here, Nipp said she has never seen anything quite like this.

“When I called the non-emergency dispatcher he was not surprised, he was like this was actually just the first call this year, but not the first call I’ve ever had. Just for him to not be shocked by it I was a little taken back,” said Nipp.

Spring is turkey mating season, after all, and this Tom Turkey didn’t let anything, not even a window, stand in the way of his search for love.

“The only thing you can do is laugh about it, I mean really just kind of not really a bucket list you wanted to check off for the end of the year, but here we are,” said Nipp.
