Thanksgiving turkey coming from Iowa

ELLSWORTH (KWWL) -- Thanksgiving is a week away and one Iowa turkey will gobble up national attention this year.

Paul Hill showed off this year's national Thanksgiving turkey at his farm in Ellsworth. As chair of the National Turkey Federation, Hill will present the 40-pound turkey to President Bush for a pardon ahead of Thanksgiving.

This is the 61st year for the pardoning of a turkey, dating back to the Truman administration.
