The child, weighed down by a backpack and something in his hand, is staying steps ahead of his pursuer in the bicycle lane. Suddenly, a sport utility vehicle veers in front of the turkey, cutting the cantankerous gobbler off from its prey.
Evan Skaletski says this happened on Shady Lane near Hazelwood, which is just west of the I-41/Lombardi Avenue interchange. The child was walking home from school when the bird went in hot pursuit.
Skaletski says the Good Samaritan who put their SUV between the turkey and the child gave the child a ride home.
