President Bush Pardons a Turkey
Posted on November 22, 2007President Bush performed the annual ritual of pardoning a turkey for Thanksgiving Day. The president officially pardoned May, the 2007 Thanksgiving Turkey, during festivities on Tuesday in the Rose Garden of the White House. The President gets a good look at the pardoned bird in the official photo below.
In the event that something happened to May, the alternate turkey named Flower would have taken her place (who knew they had runners up?). Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
