Inspired by the US president’s annual ceremonial pardoning of the Thanksgiving turkey, Giroux area farmer Ralph Peters decided to take it one step further.
“My turkeys are pretty smelly and I get complaints from people in the area all the time,” said Peters.
Peters went on to say that he understand the turkeys are not at fault, they are… well, just being turkeys, that’s what they do.
This realization prompted Peters to absolve his turkeys of wrongdoing. All the turkeys were gathered in a large barn, where a mass pardoning took place last Wednesday.
