GROVE – Sometimes, being in the right place at the right time can lead to unexpected events.

A New York State Trooper was travelling behind a pickup truck in the town of Grove on May 3, when the truck suddenly stopped in the middle of the road.

To the Trooper’s disbelief, the operator of the truck allegedly pointed a gun out the window and fired two rounds at a turkey approximately 10 yards off the road. Both shots missed and the turkey flew away unharmed.



The Trooper pulled the truck over. DEC ECO RJ Ward responded to assist. After interviewing the shooter, ECO Ward charged the subject with possession of a loaded firearm in a motor vehicle, discharging a firearm from a public highway, illegally attempting to kill a turkey, attempting to take wildlife from a public highway, and attempting to take wildlife from a motor vehicle.
