According to a news release from the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation, two officers responded to the woman’s home in Erie County on March 23.

The woman told officers that the bird had crashed through a window in the upstairs bathroom of the home, WIVB reported.

According to the DEC news release, the woman was able to close the bathroom door to contain the bird, which flew around the room. The bird crashed into mirrors and walls and left broken glass on the floor, according to the release.

Two environmental conservation officers were able to enter the bathroom and used a neighbor’s fishing net to catch the irritated turkey, the news release stated. The officers took the bird outside and set it free, and then helped the woman clean up her home.
