Hey Vegans, Adopt This Stray Turkey
Update: Great news! Lincoln, the stray turkey has been adopted -- and just in time to stuff his beak with Thanksgiving grub. According to the SPCA, his new home is the Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, located in the Central Valley.
Original Story 3:01 p.m. Alright happy vegans, here's your chance to prove that you really do care about every single animal, especially those prone to being devoured by the carnivorous kind.
There's a stray turkey who could really use a home, specifically your veggie-friendly home. The Peninsula Humane Society has been housing a domestic turkey since Nov. 18 when someone dumped it at the animal shelter.
"It's not a good week for stray turkeys," said Scott Delucchi, spokesman for the SPCA. "Fortunately, this one has been in good hands. No one here has been eying him for anything but a pet."
The staff has grown quite fond of the bird, which they named "Lincoln" after President Abraham Lincoln who declared Thanksgiving a national holiday.
While he's not all that intelligent (the bird, not the former president), Lincoln sure is friendly, healthy and damn good looking. He's looking for a home where there's dirt, fences, and some kind of shelter to protect him from the outdoor elements.
A little more background on Lincoln: The bird recently forged a special friendship with a stray goat at the shelter, however, the goat was adopted Sunday so as of now, Lincoln has nobody to spend Thanksgiving with.
Lincoln and his best friend

The adoption fee is $25.
Oh, and Happy Thanksgiving.
