This magbificent bronze turkey had a very narrow escape as some years ago at Henley market he won the "heaviest turkey" award and would have been auctioned to the highest bidder for Christmas dinner. Fortunately there were some sanctuary supporters there who clubbed together to buy him and reprieve him from going to slaughter.
George now has a lovely life, eschewing the company of lesser, non-award winning, turkeys. He struts around with his very own gang of ducks and hens surveying his grounds.
If you would like to help us meet the cost of looking after George and the rest of the rescued animals at Hillfields please consider sponsoring him.
