The lucky ones that got away
A pair of turkeys plucked from their fate on the Christmas dinner table are now enjoying life in an animal sanctuary.
They were bought from a turkey farm by an animal lover who wanted to ensure at least two would not end up in the oven, but with no space to accommodate them, she appealed to the Lord Whisky Animal Sanctuary to take them.
They were willingly received and named Hope and Peace to celebrate their narrow escape.
Now, they have been given free range with their own hut and paddock to scratch about in.
“They were bought by a very nice lady with the best of intentions but she only has a flat so immediately there was a problem,” said sanctuary owner Margaret Todd.
“As usual, we are full of animals but agreed to take them as they are relatively low maintenance.”
