Turkeys talk back at traffic in Spallumcheen

VIDEO: ‘Bossy little buggers refused to move’

A turkey traffic jam caused a few feathers to fly in Spallumcheen recently.

Rainy Whiteley and James Dennison came across a flock of the birds on Otter Lake Cross Road Wednesday, March 3.

“I’ve been in Armstrong for the last four years. Turkeys blocking the road was a first for me,” Dennison told Black Press.

Several vehicles stopped to let the birds saunter across the road and admire them.

The turkeys, who belong to a nearby farm, were in no rush to get off the road, despite honks, which they actually responded to with gobbles.

“They are bossy little buggers that refused to move,” Dennison said. “It was the good chuckle I needed yesterday.”
