Burgum Follows Tradition, Pardons Turkey

(Bismarck, ND) — Governor Doug Burgum is following a Thanksgiving tradition. Burgum pardoned a turkey named Ben during a ceremony yesterday, sparing the bird from ending up on a Thanksgiving table. The turkey was pardoned at Heaven’s Helpers Soup Cafè. The Turkey Federation donated 15 frozen turkeys to the cafè and the Abused Adult Resource Center as part of the ceremony. Ben will spend his remaining days on a farm west of Bismarck.
