In his 20 years in law enforcement, Box Elder County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Kevin Potter had never heard of a turkey attack.
That changed Sunday afternoon in Corinne, a community of a few hundred people just northwest of Brigham City. A woman's children and dog were playing in their yard near 3400 W. Arizona St. when a turkey came up and attacked them about 3:25 p.m., Potter said.
No one was hurt, but when a Box Elder County Sheriff's deputy arrived, he could see the bird was still in "an attack posture," Potter said. So the deputy shot and killed the bird.
