WILTON, Conn. A resident reported that someone in a small, white van shot and killed a wild turkey on Silver Spring Road in Wilton last week.
This was a little startling, said Wilton Police Capt. John Lynch. We dont deal with this very often.
The resident who called it in told police the people in the van used a shotgun to kill the bird before driving away. The van was described as small, white and unmarked.
When police arrived they found a dead turkey on the road, but no shell casings. Lynch said hunting in a residential area is prohibited by state and local laws and the shooting violated several hunting laws. He said the incident would probably be classified as unlawful discharge of a weapon, which is a felony.
Police ask anyone with information or reporting similar incidents to call the department at 203-834-6260.
