All this bird wanted to do was get some shut-eye, but then comes this guy with a stick.
In all honesty, catching a turkey sleeping is pretty unusual, especially in the middle of an open field in the rain. After all, there’s some cover just a few yards away. For whatever reason this turkey decides to hunker down and get a few Zs. That’s when the cameraman decides to get up behind it and poke it with a stick.
The panicked little run it does after it realizes it’s been exposed is hilarious. Luckily for this turkey, it was only human curiosity that woke it, and not the jaws of a hungry coyote.
