Milwaukee Co. Executive David Crowley pardons Tosa turkeys
WAUWATOSA, Wis. (CBS 58) -- On Tuesday, Milwaukee County Executive David Crowley pardoned the "Tosa turkeys."
People in Wauwatosa have long dealt with fearless and sometimes aggressive turkeys roaming the neighborhoods.
On Twitter, Crowley said these large birds are now "mostly welcome" members of the community -- except when blocking traffic -- and are in turn, symbolic county residents.
They are formally exempt from the dinner table.
