Turkey Stops Thief Cold

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving holiday. For me it’s always nice because my grandparents come to town for a few weeks. This gives me lots of additional begging time. I usually gain about five pounds when they are here.

It’s also the time of year I get my filling of Turkey. Breakfast, lunch and dinner have some form of turkey added in my kibble. It’s used for everything.

After reading the news this morning, I realized there was one other use I hadn’t thought of.  Take a look…

North Carolina authorities say a shopper clubbed an alleged carjacker with a frozen turkey as he tried to steal a woman’s car in a grocery store parking lot Sunday.

Police say 30-year-old Fred Louis Ervin of Raleigh stole money from a gas station before running across the street to a Harris Teeter store in a town just south of Raleigh. Garner police say he began beating Irene Moorman Bailey while stealing her car.

Other shoppers came to her rescue, including one who hit Ervin with the turkey.

Despite serious head injuries, Ervin got away in Bailey’s car and hit several other cars as he fled. But police arrested him a short time later.

My advice to the would be carjacker: stop your criminal activities, even if you have to do it cold turkey. (Thank you, thank you! I’ll be here all week…)
