Turkey Busts Into Deadwood Library

January 24, 2012, 3:42 PM

DEADWOOD, SD - A turkey looking to hit the books crashed through a window of Deadwood's public library and flew through the aisles before being corralled in a blanket and set free.

Library director Jeanette Chaney-Moodie says that she headed into work Sunday morning after authorities called her about an apparent break-in. 

Deadwood Police Sgt. Ken Mertens says he didn't see any footprints near the broken window and figured a snow blower had tossed up a rock.  Mertens says a closer inspection revealed the wing-flapping culprit: "And that turkey wanted back out that hole."

The sergeant and Chaney-Moodie's husband, John, spent 20 minutes trying to round up the 20-plus-pound poultry intruder before placing a blanket over its head and escorting it outside.

The bird fled on foot.
