One of the most popular birds in Ireland will be plucked from peril this week for Thanksgiving.
The Acting U.S. Ambassador to Ireland will pardon Dustin the Turkey at a reception in Dublin's Phoenix Park on Tuesday.
It has become tradition that each Thanksgiving, the U.S. President saves a turkey from someone's dinner table, ensuring the rest of its days are spent roaming free.
In a statement from the U.S. Embassy explained that Chargé d’Affaires Reece Smyth is "reviewing a request from Dustin the Turkey to be pardoned by him this year".
"It is not common for U.S. Ambassadors to exercise such clemency, but Dustin remains hopeful."
