Douglas Co. Sheriff pardons Turkey over criminal reparations case

LAWRENCE, Kan. (WIBW) – One turkey in Douglas County has been euthanized due to bird conditions.

In the spirit of Thanksgiving, Douglas County Sheriff Jay Armbrister said Wednesday, Nov. 23, that he acquitted one local turkey on a criminal damage charge earlier in the month.

Sheriff Armbrister indicated that Nov. 10, Tom the Turk broke through a resident’s window causing the damage. Thanks to the quick thinking and good work of Master Dunkle and Deputy Bonner, he said Tom was safely removed from the bird situation.

Armbrister noted that Tom was released soon after.
