PENN HILLS, Pa. — A wild turkey has avoided the Thanksgiving plate but didn’t survive its crash through a plate glass window at an empty western Pennsylvania restaurant.
Penn Hills police Officer Bernard Sestili tells the WTAE-TV the feathered fowl didn’t survive impact when it barreled into the dining room of the Eat’n Park in Penn Hills on Thursday afternoon. The restaurant was closed at the time.
Sestili says he responded when the building’s alarm went off.
He suspects the turkey may have been roosting in a nearby tree when it “got up this morning and went for his morning flight and flew into the window.”
Penn Hills is about 10 miles outside Pittsburgh.
