Turkey Drive-By

I used to be convinced Connecticut was a magnet for sex creeps, but lately it seems animal abusers abound in our fair state. First that guy strangled his dog. Then a deranged vet started dumping dead pets on the highway. And now turkeys are being involved in drive-by shootings.

According to the folks at The Hour of Norwalk, someone in a white van slowed down on a Wilton road, aimed as hotgun out the window, and shot a turkey. Then, to add insult to injury, he left it there. I mean, if you’re going to kill a turkey…eat it!

It sounds like a pretty stupid incident, but the truth is, this guy could be in big trouble. Unlawful discharge of a weapon is a felony and then there are all the hunting violations. And who knows, he could be practicing for bigger targets…deer or cougars or even people.
