Gov. Terry Branstad issued pardons for two turkeys named after popular Chicago Cubs players.
At Terrace Hill Monday morning, the World Series Champion Chicago Cubs inspired the annual pardoning of Thanksgiving turkeys.
Bryant and Rizzo, named after Cubs players Kris Bryant and Anthony Rizzo, will be alive and well after millions of families feast on turkey this Thanksgiving.
The two will be retired to Living History Farms to live out their remaining days.
