Good Samaritans save turkey that almost bought the farm

LIMERICK, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- While families across America will sit down to enjoy a turkey dinner with all the fixings this Thanksgiving, one lucky bird that nearly bought the farm in a car accident late last month has a new lease on life. 

Meg Lord was driving towards her home in Parsonsfield on Halloween when she saw a flock of turkeys scurry out of a field and onto a busy road.  A truck heading in the opposite direction tried to break before striking the birds, but could not avoid one of the juvenile turkeys.  

Lord stopped to see if she could help the bird, as did the driver of the truck.  They found the turkey in some tall grass and worked together to bundle it in a blanket.  She brought it to the Center For Wildlife in the hopes that they could save its life.
