Wild Turkeys Spotted In Sioux Falls

May 24, 2013, 4:00 PM

Wild Turkeys Spotted In Sioux Falls

The Memorial Day holiday weekend is just getting underway, but in some neighborhoods in Sioux Falls it's looking more like Thanksgiving.

Three wild turkeys turned up in a front yard near the Western Mall.

Game, Fish and Parks says Sioux Falls has long had a thriving population of urban turkeys. And the gobblers attract plenty of gawkers.

A Friday morning, a KELO employee caught some of the birds on camera.

“When my daughter came out and said, ‘mom, dad, there's turkeys out front.’ I didn't believe her at all and went and took a look and there they were,” homeowner Mike Rutten said.

The turkeys hunt for grain and insects to eat. Then at night, they roost up in trees.
