Menacing turkey prowling the streets, chasing after bicyclists in Brown County

BROWN COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- There's a menacing wild turkey on the loose in northeast Wisconsin.

People in Ashwaubenon have nicknamed the bird 'Smoke.'

It's been spotted in the village for months, roaming the west side.

Standing 4' tall and weighing about 20 pounds, Smoke is known to chase after bicyclists and cars.


The wild turkey has earned quite the reputation in the village.

Smoke also tends to block traffic, causing motorists to pull over and coax it out of the road.
