My Life as a Turkey
From: Nature on PBS

Based on a true story, My Life as a Turkey explores one of those rare moments when man and animal become linked. Deep in the wilds of Florida, Joe Hutto was given the rare opportunity to raise wild turkeys from chicks. Hutto would spend each day out and about as a "wild turkey" with his family of chicks. Eventually, Hutto has to let his children grow up and go off on their own but, as it turns out, this was harder than he ever imagined. By this time, he's become as close to being a turkey in human skin as nature permits. NATURE recreates this story under the supervision of Lovett Williams, a world expert on the American Turkey and Chief of Florida's Bureau of Wildlife Research.
