      WASHINGTON -- The annual presidential pardon for turkeys may spare
      them from becoming Thanksgiving Day dinner, but it falls short of
      keeping them warm and well-fed, an animal rights group says.

      People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals sent a letter Wednesday
      to President Bush, saying the turkeys he pardoned the past two years
      as a Thanksgiving tradition are living in "substandard conditions."
      The group claimed the birds were shivering in a shed without enough
      food and water at Frying Pan Park, a tourism farm in Herndon, Va.
