Being a turkey is hard work these days. You have to be constantly on the lookout for strangers bearing axes and guns, who are saving a place for you on their Thanksgiving table. Thats why Tom, a pet turkey at Arwin (Bud) Strieter's farm, wasn't taking any chances. When he saw hunter Ron Knecht of Ann Arbor moseying around the barnyard, he attacked. Knecht, who had never been attacked by a turkey before, fled quickly - a little too quickly. He tripped over the dog and wound up flat on his back. The turkey was declared the winner. Incidentally, Tom really didn't have much to worry about. He'll enjoy his status as family pet for many Thanksgivings to come.
