Turkeys guests of honour at vegan Thanksgiving feast

Turkeys avoid dinner plate

Two lucky turkeys are spending Thanksgiving dinner at the table instead of on the table in Aldergrove.

The Happy Herd Farm Sanctuary, a home for abused or at-risk farm animals, planned to host a vegan potluck dinner Sunday.

The guests of honour are resident turkeys Mo and Leonard.

The sanctuary says in a statement that 20 million turkeys are killed for food each year in Canada and it believes the animals deserve better.

It describes Mo and Leonard as social, sensitive and curious animals who always follow visitors around.

The sanctuary adds that Mo loves attention and when he's happy, his neck changes from blue to red in a few minutes.
