    We were driving back from the DMV to get my older brother's learners permit for driving. He passed and he is on the roads now! [​IMG] When we were driving home from getting lunch in town. Thank God my dad was driving home because out of the bushes came a flying huge object. We realized very quickly that it was a turkey and we were going to hit it. We tried to break but it was to late. It barley missed the front of the car but it hit the back seat window where my brother was. It spurs scratched the window but didn't break it. It was a young jake and unfortunatley didn't make it to get big. The last we saw him he was swirling into the air and into the bushes. Poor guy. On the window there was blood, scratches and the one feather that I recovered.

    Did you make sure he was actually dead? VINS will rehab turkeys.

    Wow....I generally have a kinda creepy sense of humor but I am not finding anything remotely funny about an innocent animal being hit by a car.......
