All Athena Bryson wanted for Christmas was a new pet, but not just any animal would do. She decided she wanted to save a turkey from becoming Christmas dinner.

Now Valerie the turkey spends all her time as a house pet in this Northern Ireland home. She seems very well behaved, maybe she's knows just how lucky she is. Athena's mom managed to find a farmer who was willing to spare a turkey for a pet just one day before she was scheduled for slaughter.

Now Valerie will live comfortably with the Bryson family for the rest of her life.
