Maybe this turkey was trying to launch a pre-emptive strike before Thanksgiving.
Utility officials say a turkey flew into a power line in Sheboygan County on Saturday morning. A Sheboygan Press report says the contact knocked out power for about 1,500 people.
We Energies spokeswoman Cathy Schulze says the outage was reported just before 8 a.m. She says power was restored to all but a handful of homes and businesses within an hour.
