A Sad Turkey Story
We stopped to let the turkey get to where it was going, but it didn't move out of the way like animals usually do. Other cars behind us passed us on the left not knowing there was a turkey there stopping us. We kind of assumed the turkey was just being stubborn. We just weren't sure what was going on with the bird.
After awhile the turkey moved to the side of our vehicle and we went along our way. When we got down the road just a short distance we heard the blare of a car horn behind us. A car behind us wasn't quite so patient with the bird as we were. We both shook our heads and kept moving.
I don't know what happened to this turkey because it could have been a couple of things. Either it was sick, which is why it was acting so strangely. Or some careless driver either accidentally or on purpose ran it over. Now just thinking about the poor bird makes me sad.
At least the turkey won't just be forgotten. I have these pictures to remember it forever. Something else to always remember is that nature isn't always fun and happy. I'll talk to you later about something happy because we'd all rather be happy now.
