Injured turkey 'Archer' found dead

Turkey was released into wild last week

SAN DIEGO - The injured turkey known as Archer was found dead Wednesday just one week after being released into the wild.

The turkey was spotted several times earlier this year with an arrow through his body. He was finally corralled and veterinarians removed the arrow.

After recovering from the surgery, Archer was released in Ramona.

Some believe Archer's old flock never took him back.

The Ramona Sentinel reported Archer's remains were found near the Riviera Oaks Resort.
