US Farm animal sanctuary asks Biden to give pardoned turkeys to it after thanksgiving

Washington, Nov 13 (UNI/Sputnik) US animal protection organisation Farm Sanctuary is preparing a petition to US President Joe Biden, calling for sending to it the turkeys pardoned at the upcoming traditional Thanksgiving ceremony.
"This November, President Biden will keep with the recent White House tradition of 'symbolically' pardoning turkeys, rescuing them from slaughter. These turkeys are often sent to farms, petting zoos, and universities with poultry science programs, where they are likely not cared for as individuals with unique personalities, emotions, needs, and preferences," the organisation said.
Farm Sanctuary guarantees that will provide animals with due care and safety, therefore the organisation asks the US president to place the turkeys under its care.
