Tom is dead. And Texas police have nabbed a suspect in the turkey-cide.
The fowl — called Tom by some, George by others, but beloved for years by the town of Argyle, despite tying up traffic and hassling humans — died Wednesday after someone wrung his neck, the Dallas Morning News reported.
“He just walked around. It felt like he owned the place, directing traffic and stopping traffic…,” Corey Elam of Argyle Auto Care told the Denton Record-Chronicle. “The people of Argyle always put up with him because he was the unofficial mayor of Argyle. It was kind of fun and all of us, you know, grin and bear it.”
Official word of the gobbler’s demise came from the Argyle Police Department, which sniffed out a suspect through video and interviews before turning the case over the Texas wildlife officials.
Only a day later, game wardens charged Cole Lemmon, 27, with two misdemeanors: hunting without a license and possessing a game animal taken from a public road. If Lemmon is convicted, he faces a fine of up to $500 for each crime — and restitution.
Cops have heard from residents that they’re keen to cry fowl again, but they’ll be breaking the law if they bring in another bird without the state’s OK.
So for now, the locals are simply mourning their beloved bird on Facebook’s The Tom George Argyle Turkey page.
“Today was the first day I knew I wouldn’t see you, and the drive through Argyle was so sad. I never knew I could love a turkey so much,” wrote one woman.
And a guy suggested a variation on a memorial service.
“There should be a whiskey festival in your honor. And Wild Turkey Whiskey can sponsor it!”
