Pet turkey stolen
A family have been left heartbroken and confused in the days before Christmas after their pet turkey was stolen, probably to end up on a dinner table.
Mr Frisky is a large 60lb turkey and Bradford celebrity after appearing on radio and local news. He was snatched from the shed where he's lived for the past four years with his partner Mrs Turkey, leaving her and his family in Oak Bank Farm, Shipley absolutely distraught. The bird had been rescued from the chop more than four years ago by owner Charlotte Wright. He's described as a lovable colourful character.
Mrs Wright, 36, said: "We are so upset because he's a pet. It is bad enough getting possessions stolen but with pets there is an emotional attachment as well. The kids love him because he wandered about the field talking to them and making gobbling noises. He was quite a character."
"Now they keep asking where he has gone and if he had been killed and somebody is having him for dinner. We have just told them that naughty people have taken him. Mrs Turkey is traumatised, because we got them both at the same time and they have lived together for a long time."
West Yorkshire Police say they suspect theft and that it happened overnight on Tuesday. If you have any information, please contact them.
