KUNA, Idaho (WTHR) - It's proof again that a police officer's day will often go in unexpected directions.

Sheriff's deputies in Ada County, Idaho, got a call recently about a traffic obstruction.

The culprit? Turkeys. Three of them.

Officers did their best to order them out of the roadway but got no cooperation from the fowl. A passing motorist even stopped to offer help.

It was all captured on a deputy's body camera. See more in the video player above.
