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'.

The best idea ever, i want President: Barry Obama to change THE LONG name of "The United States Of America" to just "American Union", if The President Of Mexico can do it then Obama can too... http://news.yahoo.com/mexicos-president-tries-change-countrys-name-162711977.html

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. Ummmmm call me crazy, but didn't they just give the reason as to why the turkey was killed. It was sick so they euthanized it by the recommendation of the veterinarian. Wouldn't that be the reason, meaning the first paragraph makes is false. Also, it should've been rewritten as to saying that they didn't know the specific illness because the reason why is known. The person who wrote this must be drunk.
