Turkey Crashes Through WBZ Meteorologist Joe Joyce’s Cohasset Home

COHASSET (CBS) – This is one forecast WBZ Meteorologist Joe Joyce could have never predicted. A wild turkey crashed right into his home in Cohasset on Thursday.

“All of a sudden, I heard shattering glass like I never heard before,” said Joe’s wife Jennifer Joyce. “I saw it standing on the table, its wings fanned out and it was hissing at me.”

The animal smashed through a picture window and into the family’s home.

It wasn’t long before Joe arrived home, just in time to see the turkey huddled on the bookcase.

“I turned around the corner and there it was,” he said.

“It was like (huffing and puffing)… bleeding, obviously not happy where it was and very defensive and ready to attack,” said Joe. “I was not about to mess with it.”

“It was like a rumble going on in the house. Bang, bang, lamps are crashing down like a big fight in the house,” said Joe.

It would take an animal control officer and the help of a trusty umbrella to handle the leftovers.

All in all, everyone involved was just glad when it was over.

“I’m sure poor thing didn’t want to be in our house anymore than we wanted him in our house,” said Jennifer.
