(Corinne, UT) — A Box County Sheriff’s deputy made a once-in-a-lifetime decision last weekend. According to the “Salt Lake Tribune,” Kevin Potter shot and killed a turkey after it went after children and a dog. The incident happened Saturday in Corinne, a small town just northwest of Brigham City. When Potter arrived, he saw the bird was in attack mode, so before it attacked again he shot and killed it. The turkey was domestic and its owner came to the scene to claim the bird. No one was hurt in the incident.
