Turkey crashes through window of library

`A wild turkey shattered the calm – and a window – at the St. Joseph County Library when it crashed through, toppling books until a custodian captured the disoriented bird.

“I’ve heard of deer going through houses, but never turkeys going into a library,” branch manager Judy Falzon said.

Falzon was preparing to open the library shortly before 9 a.m. Friday when the bird crashed in. She and custodian Irvin Cygirt watched as the animal hopped around, hit stacks of books and flew onto a cabinet.’
