Historic fact: “Turkey Talon’s Tied to Jurist’s Demise. On this day in 1793, Samuel Spencer died. Spencer had a most unusual death, by turkey. At age 60, Spencer was napping outside on his porch, wearing a red cap. Spencer’s bobbing head was then taken for a challenge by a turkey, which attacked the judge with such violence he was thrown from his chair. The judge died a few days later from either injuries sustained in the fall, or from an infection from the scratches.” – NC Department of Natural and Cultural Resources
