Fun fact: The heaviest turkey in the world weighed 86 lb

In honour of American Thanksgiving yesterday, here’s a fun turkey fact.

In 1989, a stag turkey named Tyson weighed 86 lb. (39.09 kg), earning it the Guinness World Record of the greatest dressed weight recorded for a turkey.

Tyson won London, U.K.’s, last annual “heaviest turkey” competition on Dec. 12, 1989, and was later auctioned for charity.

She told officers she suspected a neighbour who had moved away around that time took the dog, but the neighbour denied any involvement.
