In Maine an unsuspecting turkey was hit by Meg Lord while driving in her truck, but the bird refused to die. The turkey was picked up by Lord and taken to a vet, where it was treated for brain injury and a broken wing, but survived. They named her Alice.
|Alice, AKA American Badass.|
"When I went over to her [Alice], I spoke to her really quietly and said, 'I'm going to put the blanket over you,' and I reached down and picked her up and she was huge. She just felt huge in my arms."
Alice has nearly recovered from her injuries and will soon be released back into the wild, where she will face head on her life of danger and excitement.
The vet who treated her:
"It is hunting season for turkeys, so she kind of gets a pass this year, I guess."
If everything goes well for ol' Alice, she will be back in the wild fully recovered, ready to take on all comers. I imagine that even if some unsuspecting hunter dares to point his shotgun her way she will promptly kick the shot right back at him and then go on with her day.
Don't mess with Alice you turkey.
