Greetings fellow Bizarros:
It never fails; right around Thanksgiving bizarre turkey related stories always start popping up. And this year is no exception.
I was particularly amused by the suicide turkey in Sheboygan, WI who launched a preemptive strike on Thanksgiving last week. Utility officials say the turkey flew into a power line in Sheboygan County knocking out power for about 1,500 people.
But the real story comes from Gulf Breeze, FL where investigators say a teenager and his friend used a bow and arrow to shoot and kill a neighbor family's pet turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner.
Sheriff's deputies arrested the two Santa Rosa County teens charging them with armed burglary, armed trespassing, theft of livestock and animal cruelty.
The teens told deputies they planned to eat the 30-pound turkey for Thanksgiving. I guess food stamps are a little harder to get in Florida.
The turkey's owners are a couple of animal lovers who live on 6 acres and have a multitude animals, but they said this turkey was special because he was so friendly. In fact, they said he was more like a family dog than a turkey.
Although the family dog would not go nearly so well with stuffing, mashed potatoes and gravy.

Tarantula grounds plane overnight
A Delta plane was grounded overnight in Baltimore when a tarantula escaped from its container in the cargo hold and was spotted by baggage handlers. Delta spokesman Brian Kruse said Atlanta-bound Flight was scheduled to take off from Baltimore-Washington International Airport at 7 p.m. Wednesday, but the pilot decided to ground the plane after baggage handlers discovered the loose arachnid in the cargo hold. "They were able to capture it, and they contacted the handler" to ensure there hadn't been any other tarantulas in the same cage, Kruse said. The passengers were moved to another aircraft, which departed about three hours behind schedule. A passenger reported a flight crew member told him there were a total 750 tarantulas on board the plane and most of them had gotten loose, but Kruse said only the one spider was ever free and it never left the cargo hold.

Man cited for driving motorized cooler
Police in Australia said a man was cited for driving without a license and officers confiscated his unusual vehicle -- a motorized cooler. Police said officers stopped a 25-year-old man, who was spotted driving a motorized cooler on a sidewalk in Kerang, Victoria. A photo posted by police shows a blue cooler on a metal platform with four wheels, an engine, and handlebars arranged to indicate the cooler serves as the small vehicle's seat. Officers said the cooler was impounded for 30 days, and the man was cited for driving without a license. The police said the cooler "is considered a vehicle due to the size/engine capacity and must comply with legislative requirements and road rules."
