Every year the President will ceremonially pardon two turkeys, a completely farcical display that does nothing to actually protect the turkeys, as due to the fact they have been selectively bred to grow so large, so fast, they normally die within just a matter of months of being 'pardoned'.
Turkeys are intelligent and complex animals, who create long lasting bonds with each other and have unique voices so that they can tell each other apart. They are affectionate and will even cuddle people, much in the same way as a dog or a cat.
This is the story of the #Thanksgiving turkey, and how one tradition has resulted in billions of animals being tortured, mutilated, and killed, just so that humans can 'give thanks'.
