It's a Thanksgiving conspiracy -- one of the turkeys pardoned by President Barack Obama last year was euthanized this week ... just days before Turkey Day ... and so far, no one's saying why.

A rep for the Mt. Vernon Estate -- where the pardoned turkeys are SUPPOSED to live out the remainder of their days in pastured leisure -- said the turkey (named Peace) was euthanized Monday following an illness over the weekend.

But the rep didn't know what kind of illness it was, how it was subsequently killed, or what the plans were for the turkey's delicious remains.

The rep says the decision to exterminate the fowl was made by a local veterinarian.

Coincidentally, the Mt. Vernon Estate DOES serve turkey on Thanksgiving.

We're just sayin'.

Not sure a sick turkey's remains containing the drugs that euthanized him would be all that delicious.

Why is this surprising? Obama made sure that this turkey got the same fate our Diplomat did.

Makes you all warm and fuzzy inside knowing how much weight the word of our President carries...

TMZ writers you are pathetic, you should not be writing anything. If you can't come up with a factual headline, not a made up salacious one you should be fired.
