Edna Geisler has to stay on her toes when she leaves her Commerce Township, Michigan home.

A territorial tom turkey has taken up residence in her yard.

The 35-pound bird sees Edna as a threat to a harem of hens hanging out in the nearby woods.

Edna says he arrives around seven every morning and stays all day.

She's tried chasing him away, but so far has had no success.

Edna says Thanksgiving isn't the solution, nor is the upcoming turkey season in May.

She also won't call Animal Control.

Edna says she's willing to coexist until nature takes its course.
