KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A wild turkey took a stroll through the River Market Tuesday morning before animal control officers picked up the confused bird.
They found it near 2nd and Wyandotte around 9 a.m. after receiving reports from the mayor’s office.
Animal Control Officer James Donovan told 41 Action News citizens were concerned for the turkey’s welfare.
Officers were dispatched and met with maintenance staff from a nearby apartment complex, who showed them where the turkey was located.
The turkey was captured and will be taken to Lakeside Nature Center for evaluation.
We did our best, but ultimately we had to leave turkey catching to the pros at @KCMO Animal Health & Safety. We'll stick to catching people who act like donkeys (insert PG-13 curse word). pic.twitter.com/7k8Hc8wNiW— Kansas City Police (@kcpolice) April 23, 2019
