Wild Turkey Rescued

Wild Turkey Rescued

WINNIPEG - A wild turkey has been rescued from downtown Winnipeg.

The bird now resting comfortably at the Wildlife Haven Rehabilitation Centre after possibly breaking a toe.

Carter Phillips at the centre says this is the first time he can remember an injured wild turkey being rescued from the downtown area.

The Winnipeg Humane Society says the city has always had a decent-sized wild turkey population but we see them more in the spring because they're roaming around looking for food.

Manitoba Conservation says if you find yourself face to face with a wild turkey, don't run and act big and the bird will likely move along quickly.
