There's something strange lurking around people's yards, and looking in windows in Glyndon, Minnesota.

"He just wanders up and down our block," says Karen Barbee.

"He" is a tom turkey.

You could call him the Glyndon Gobbler, because he's been strutting around town for around five months, but most people just call him Roger.

He wanders the streets, is known to hold up traffic on Highway 10 and will eat anything you throw his way.

He roams alone and has to fend for himself, which has some of his fans worried.

Some are saying he'll wind up on the Thanksgiving table.

He's got a lot of people on his side, but come Thanksgiving if he's gone, we'll know what happened.
