Lost Turkey Avoids Christmas
A lost turkey has been named after The Great Escape star, Steve McQueen,
after it avoided the chop this Christmas. Queenie was taken to the
RSPCA's "Stubbington Ark",
near Fareham, Hampshire, England, animal shelter after the creature was seen
strolling along a busy road locally.
It is unclear whether Queenie escaped from a private coop or a farm.
The bird will be ready to be re-homed, with staff insisting Queenie goes to
a loving home with no chance of ending up as dinner next Christmas.
Will, who lives very close to the Stubbington Ark, has been told by staff
that Queenie had settled in well and was fit and healthy. One helper told
him, 'After a few checks she will be ready for re-homing but her new owners
need a good-sized garden, a run and have experience keeping poultry.
Will's wife's cat, Butser, also came from this same animal sanctuary
after being rescued as a stray.
The turkey is a funny bird
Its head goes bobble-bobble;
And all he
knows is just one word...
And that is gobble-gobble.
'Don't assume you're always going to be understood. I wrote in a column
that one should put a cup of liquid in the cavity of a turkey when roasting
it. Someone wrote me that: "The turkey tasted great, but the plastic cup
melted." ' - Heloise.
