SOUTH BEND -- Custodian Irvin Cygirt was sweeping the library floor Friday morning when he heard an ear-splitting crash nearby.
The explosion was so loud that Cygirt says his first thought was a car had driven through the window.
But the custodian quickly discovered it wasn't a car.
It was a turkey.
That's right, a wild turkey had flown into a double window at the St. Joseph County Library, western branch, shattering glass in every direction and knocking over rows of books.
"I've heard of deer going through houses," said branch manager Judy Falzon, "but never turkeys going into a library."
