Driver saves child being chased by Wisconsin turkey

Thanksgiving is over, but one turkey is still the center of attention.

A wild bird was caught on camera chasing down a Wisconsin boy who was walking home from school. Quickly, a sympathetic driver pulled over in between the boy and the turkey, stopping the bird in its tracks.

Apparently, the turkey is known to be a terror around Ashwaubenon. Residents have given him the name, “Smoke.” They have even called it the unofficial mayor of the town.

Evan Skaletski captured the video of the chase, which has since went viral.
