Turkey Who Thinks He’s A Dog Is Spared The Thanksgiving Table For Being Adorable


Turkey Day may be upon us, but we know one bird who will fortunately be spared the festivities.

Leon the Turkey is a resident of Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary in Stockton, California, but his caretakers don’t describe him as a typical bird. This guy is somewhat more along the lines of a dog stuck in the body of a turkey. That’s because this little dude adores belly rubs, and loves to hug and kiss.

“He just took to people immediately,” sanctuary manager Christine Morrissey told local news stations. She said he was found wandering in the streets of Ventura County in Southern California and has been a resident (and favorite) of the sanctuary every since.

“For an animal [like this] to immediately trust us and want companionship, that is, definitely I would say, an unusual trait,” Morrissey said.

And that rust and love are coming in handy this Thanksgiving. Morrissey added that Leon is of the age to be slaughtered and served, but will be spared this Thanksgiving and all future Turkey Days because he’s such a favorite.

What do you make of this lovable and adorable turkey? Take a look at his fluffy cuddles below and please SHARE with friends and family!
