WASHINGTON (KABC) -- President Barack Obama continued a decades-old tradition at the White House Wednesday morning when he officially pardoned the National Thanksgiving Turkey.
The pardon was issued to a gobbler named Apple and its alternate, Cider.
The two 21-week-old, 45-pound turkeys were raised on a farm near Modesto, California.
