Turkey provides some comic relief for winter weary residents in Laval

It was a bright spot for some Laval residents in an otherwise depressing and dreary day punctuated by ongoing black-outs and more snow.

Peter Frantzeskos snapped this photo of a wild turkey roaming the streets right after heavy, wet snow blanketed the region Tuesday.

The turkey was spotted at the intersection of rue Bertin and Jacques-Plante in the Chomedey district.

Wild turkeys are becoming increasingly common in the southern part of the province.

The birds pose no problem and should be left alone.
