Pet turkey goes missing on Thanksgiving

A pet turkey went missing on Thanksgiving.

Maddy Eckel had been raising the turkey named Scout for almost two years.

Eckel went to check on him when she noticed a few feathers but no Scout.

She had a friend’s tracking dog follow Scout’s scent into the woods until it went cold.

“My gut tells me someone stole him because it was the holiday,” said Eckell. “I don’t have a lot of good faith that he may still be alive, but for my peace of mind to know what happened to him would be great.”

Eckell still has hope that Scout is out there somewhere and she hopes that he is okay.
