Turkey in need of cataract surgery

REHOBOTH, Mass. (AP) - November 24, 2009


She's looking for help in saving Jerry the turkey.

The Massachusetts woman adopted three-year-old Jerry and another turkey from a Rhode Island farm last week.

But Jerry has cataracts.

Those eye problems mean Jerry can't eat independently or fly with his lady turkey pal, Penelope.

Medeiros has turned to Craigslist to raise money for Jerry's eye surgery.

The online posting says the operation could cost up to $2,600.

Her farm in Rehoboth, Mass., cares for other animals with health problems, too.
