True-on November 2007, President George W. Bush granted a pardon to two turkeys, named may and flower, at the 60th annual national thanksgiving turkey presentation, held in the rose garden at the white house. the two turkeys were flown to orlando, florida, where they served as honorary grand marshals for the disney world thanksgiving parade. The current tradition of presidential turkey pardons began in 1947, under Harry Truman, but the practice is said to have informally begun with Abraham Lincoln, who granted a pardon to his son tads pet turkey.
