Brandon, MB (CKLQ) - Two teens are charged with inflicting injury on an animal after allegedly striking a wild turkey with a golf club.

One was struck and received a broken leg as a result.

The two teens are also charged with possessing a weapon and will be in court in November.

The injured turkey was captured by animal control officers and released outside of city limits.
