HUDSONVILLE, Mich. (WOOD) — Four teenagers accused of brutally killing a neighborhood turkey named Mr. Gobbles had their first day in an Ottawa County court Tuesday.

Concerned neighbors from the Waukazoo Woods neighborhood of Park Township filled the courtroom Tuesday to watch Elijah Vander Lee, Thomas Sinclair, Ben Slenmegan and Megan De Meeste appear before a judge.

All four teens pleaded not guilty to a misdemeanor charge of unlawfully taking a turkey in connection to the Fourth of July attack on the bird. The teens then proceeded with pretrial conferences.
