Two turkeys spared from Thanksgiving table in Iowa

"Spuds" and "Gravy" won't be the guest of honor at anyone's Thanksgiving meal Thursday.

They're two tom turkeys that were pardoned Tuesday by Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds.

The two were raised by Russ Yoder of Wellman, turkey farmer and president of the Iowa Turkey Federation.

It was Governor Reynolds' first pardon of turkeys since she became governor.  

Both turkeys were vocal in their appreciation...interrupting Reynolds twice as reporters looked on outside the governor's mansion.
