WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) - It's a happy turkey-day for one Iowa bird, a turkey from Ellsworth.

The turkey could have ended up on someone's table.
It won't be gobbled up anymore.

President Bush pardoned two turkeys today in Washington and also announced their names.

"Pumpkin" the one from Iowa will be flown first class to Disneyland where he will be the grand marshal of Disney's Thanksgiving Day Parade.
