AMHERST, N.Y. (WIVB) — Some residents near the corner of Paradise and Klein roads in Amherst are mounting a silent protest.
They miss Tom the Turkey, who guarded that intersection for the last few years.
Amherst police worked with animal control officers to capture Tom and take him to a wildlife refuge in East Concord.
There had been concerns that the turkey had become a traffic hazard, putting both drivers and Tom in jeopardy.
Drivers at that intersection can now see signs of support for Tom.
