Brant Pinvidic, a television and movie producer who lives in California, started off rescuing dogs years ago. Then he rescued horses. Then, last year, an acquaintance offered him a turkey from that farm. He decided to take two — and save their lives, even though he’d never even met a turkey before. “It was going to be a symbolic gesture,” Pinvidic told The Dodo, “you know, for the kids."
So he chose a boy and a girl and brought them home. He named them Albert and Princess. Pinvidic put the two rescue birds in the coop in his yard to let them get used to their new home for about a week.
