ORANGE, Calif. (AP) — Tim the Turkey’s abduction did more than ruffle a few feathers.
It landed two California college students in jail Monday after the bird was found wandering a street reeking of beer and suffering from a broken toe, missing feathers and other injuries.
The Orange County Register (http://bit.ly/22MmFNM) reports Tim was being treated by a veterinarian Tuesday.
Orange High School agriculture teacher Patti Williams says Tim vanished from his pen sometime between Saturday night and Sunday morning.
After she circulated his photo several people found him wandering on a street and corralled him.
County Jail records show Chapman University students 23-year-old Steven Koressel and 21-year-old Richard Brenton were released on their own recognizance.
Their phone numbers are unlisted and it couldn’t be determined if they had retained attorneys
