Turkey Knocks Out Power in Sheboygan County

About 1,500 customers were in the dark



    A turkey, like the one in the photo, knocked out the power Saturday morning in Sheyboygan County in Wisconsin.

    Maybe this turkey in Wisconsin was trying to launch a pre-emptive strike before Thanksgiving.

    Utility officials say a turkey flew into a power line in Sheboygan County on Saturday morning. The contact knocked out power for about 1,500 people, according to a Sheboygan Press report.

    We Energies spokeswoman Cathy Schulze says the outage was reported just before 8 a.m. She says power was restored to all but a handful of homes and businesses within an hour.
