Moorhead, MN – If you see small groups of turkeys along the Red River in Moorhead, chances are the police will not be far behind.
Moorhead Police are now using domesticated, trained wild turkeys to solve many heretofore previously unsolved crimes.
Recently, Moorhead’s Turkey Police led patrol cars right to the front door of Mr. Marvin Shellhammer who had unknowingly vandalized some property while the Turkey Police Officers were watching him.
Officer Ray Dookins: “These turkeys are great for solving crimes because they have extremely strong mental focus almost like a sixth sense. And plus, it will be real nice to have them around for Thanksgiving.”
