Liberty and Bell got ready for their presidential pardons in a hotel suite close to the White House on Monday (20 November).
The pair of Thanksgiving turkeys played their part in what has become an annual tradition: A president sparing turkeys from becoming someone’s holiday dinner.
Steve Lykken, chairman of the National Turkey Federation and president of the Jennie-O Turkey Store, introduced Liberty and Bell on Sunday (19 November) at an event at a luxury hotel close to the White House.
The gobblers checked into a suite following their red-carpet arrival, after a dayslong road trip from Minnesota in a black Cadillac Escalade.
