Amarillo, TX - Two holidays later, a controversial North Amarillo Halloween decoration has been taken down.

This is a follow-up to a NewsChannel 10 story that made national news.

The scarecrow had upset some parents because it was flipping the middle finger and holding a beer.

The people who put up the decoration says it was a joke on their private property.

Hundreds of viewers responded to a web poll about the scarecrow.

Forty percent of them voted for the winning choice stating: "I don't like it, but they have the right to display it on their private property".
