Exercising turkey

A turkey gets some exercise on a rooftop deck at the W Hotel in Washington, DC. one day before being pardoned by US President Barack Obama at the White House. Two turkeys from Foster Farms, named Tom One and Tom Two, are staying at the luxury hotel on the eve of the annual White House Thanksgiving holiday ritual, with one being chosen as the bird to be publicly pardoned, with the other ready to step in should the bird get stage fright. After Wednesday's ceremony, both birds will live at George Washington's Mount Vernon estate in Virginia.Getty Images
