Watch these firefighters rescue eight baby turkeys stuck in a storm drain

Last Tuesday an Asheville, North Carolina fire department got an unusual request that had nothing to do with fighting a fire.  They were called to rescue eight poults or baby turkeys, that were stuck in a storm drain on La Grange Drive near Mission Hospital, WLOS reported.

People walking a dog noticed an upset hen as they headed down the road. They investigated the poults stuck in the drain and called for help.

Firefighters said it's not every day they receive a call like this one.

They arrived at the scene to find the drain cover was welded in place and had to call for backup to get the equipment to cut the top off. Once firefighters got in there, they discovered the poults were in the middle of the pipe, which runs under the road. So, they had to cover the drain on the other side of the road.

The turkeys were OK and reunited with their mom.
