The lucky ones that got away

Kentish Gazette Canterbury & District - - Woolworths: A Decade On -

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.”
