Obama's Pardoned Turkey Will Just Die Anyway!

| Filed under: Barack ObamaSad SadFoodBirds

President Obama's pardoned turkeys don't actually live much longer to enjoy their freedom.

Well this just burst a magical Thanksgiving fantasy we had.

One of the best parts of Thanksgiving is when the President pardons two turkeys from having to be eaten.

Sure, when President Obama waves his magic hand, the turkeys are no longer on death row. Heck, they even move to George Washington's historic home of Mount Vernon.

But after that? They don't make it very long.

The problem is while a wild turkey weighs about 12-pounds, a turkey that's been raised for eating weighs about 40!!

When an ABC reporter visited the farm where pardoned birds are sent, he found only an empty cage.

The farmer said:

"We usually just find ‘em and they’re dead. Their flesh has grown so fast, and their heart and their bones and their other organs can’t catch up."

So because they're grown to be food, they basically can't be anything other than food.

They have an expiration date while they're still alive!! That's so sad!

We still think pardoning the turkeys is a great idea because it at least gives them a few months to a year of a good life and gives other turkeys hope that maybe it could be them getting pardoned next year!

    Why should turkeys have to hope to be "pardoned"? Pardoned for what? What on earth have they done wrong? The whole thing makes me sick…especially the fact that they're so overfed that they can't even live normal lives. The fact that we as humans can treat animals this way is heartbreaking.

    Very symbolic of this president and everything he does. Perception vs reality. Come tax time you wont find many democrats anymore, especially when kids making 16k a year get their obamacare bill

    Courage and Carolina were raised on the Bryant Worley Family Farm in Princeton. They were the pardoned turkeys of 2009. Courage is still alive and resides at Disneyland.
