#Snapped: Why did the Turkey Cross the Road?
A rafter of wild turkeys stopped traffic late yesterday morning on Main Street, in Buffalo.
Not a care in the world, the turkeys continued their parade between residents. No word on why they crossed the road.
Here are some fun facts about wild turkeys:
- After nearly becoming extinct in the 1930s, there are now more than seven million turkeys in North America.
- Each adult wild turkey boasts approximately 5,500 feathers, including 18 tail feathers that make up the tom’s distinct fan.
- Wild turkeys can run at speeds up to 25 miles per hour. (although that was not observed yesterday as they crossed the road)
- A wild turkey’s gobble can be heard up to a mile away.
