A man was surprised to find a Turkey wandering along a busy road outside Oakland, California, just before Thanksgiving.

The nameless turkey had escaped an urban farm, and Dale found him adrift and all alone.

Seeing the individual struggling to survive, Dale knew he had to do something.

Dale got in touch with the people at Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary, who were more than happy to come to the rescue of the turkey, bringing him to a home where he could be safe forever.

The day before Thanksgiving, rescuers came to pick up the turkey from Dale, and take him to a home he could call his own.

Dale described the experience of meeting and rescuing a turkey as "open-minding," according to Christine Morrissey, of Harvest Home Animal Sanctuary. "He had an unbelievable experience of seeing turkeys in a completely new light," she told The Dodo.
