DOUGLAS COUNTY, Kan. – A turkey in Kansas has something to be thankful for this year.

Douglas County sheriff Jay Armbrister pardoned a turkey of any criminal damage charges after an unusual incident.

On Nov. 10, the Douglas County Sheriff’s Office says a turkey named Tom broke through a window and into a resident’s home.

Thankfully, the ordeal was under control once master deputy Dunkle and deputy Bonner safely removed the bird from inside the house and set him free.
