A turkey pardoned by President Obama last year was euthanized Monday, and officials are insisting the timing of the death -- days before the Thanksgiving holiday -- is not suspicious.


Washington -- Peace, one of two turkeys pardoned by President Obama last year, was euthanized Monday, according to an official who insisted the timing of the death - days before the Thanksgiving holiday - was not suspicious.

Rebecca Aloisi, vice president for marketing at the Mount Vernon Estate, confirmed that Peace had been dead after a weekend "illness." But Aloise knew neither the nature of the illness, the manner of death, nor what had been done with the remains of the large, edible bird.

What a synchro! This morning when. I saw a photo of the turkey, o and his two daughters, I wondered to myself if the pardon was just a short term thing, like who checks up on these things?

Since when do they call a turkey dieing of unnamed causes "edible".

The turkeys we eat at Thanksgiving are nothing like the wild turkeys we see in the wild. They are selected for size and weight gain (feed conversion ratio) and appetite and breast size and are not designed to stand on their legs for too long and they are just generally pathologically genetically screwed up.

They aren't designed to live a long time. They are designed to put on weight and grow as fast as possible. ~ 1 lb of weight gain for every 2 pounds of feed they eat.

I'm surprised that I'm the only one to post this. It was pretty low hanging fruit.
