Daily Cute: Tom Turkeys Love Playing Soccer

Daily Cute: Tom Turkeys Love Playing Soccer

The owner of these tom turkeys found that they love playing soccer with her daughter’s kick ball. Sadly, the ball was run over, and the turkeys haven’t found a ball they love as much.

Even so, this video is fun to watch if you’ve ever been interested in what a soccer match looks like for turkeys. Enjoy!

Interesting. Comments are even more interesting. Didn't know the turkeys felt threatened and were attacking the ball. Good thing they haven't felt threatened by any other balls around.

I'm sure these ones are not to be eaten... thank God!

Interesting, 'soccer turkeys'. I see the two orange cats conferring in the wings, observing closely in the background. They will be discussing how they plan to take on the turkeys in a World Cup soccer match in Brazil in 2014. The cats of course, play purrfectly and will be victorious. Sorry to ruffle your feathers turkeys, but felines are faster in the game of soccer, especially when the word 'catnip' is whispered.

It's possible, Anita W that while going after the ball, injuries can occur but hopefully the people there are keeping an eye on them. Dogs and other animals can also get hurt while going on a walk, children can get hurt doing what children do when outside.

The tribe has water rights and they are allowing Nestle to use it. The law is on their side and there…

This clip is actually of great scientific value because it shows the extent to which the kitten is relying…

“Yeah, I tried the "facts and logic" route too. Unfortunately it was completely ineffective.” Really?…
