(Meredith) – A Wisconsin woman said her motherly instincts kicked in when she spotted a turkey chasing a young boy walking home from school.
Vanessa Miramontes told WBAY she witnessed the bizarre pursuit while she was driving in Green Bay on Monday.
“As we got closer, you just saw this kid’s eyes completely bugged out and this turkey running full speed,” she said. “I knew I had to do something to help in the slightest.”
Miramontes said she drove her SUV between the child and the turkey, stopping the chase.
"No intentions were there to hit the turkey or hurt it by any means, but it was awfully close to the kid where I knew something needed to happen or it would hurt the kid," she said.
The viral moment was caught on camera by Evan Skaletski, who shared it with WBAY.
