Detective StablerMarch 2, 2013:  Detective Stabler, one of the turkeys abandoned in Cleveland this past October, passed away.  He had recently been having trouble getting around and was breathing more heavily than usual.  He  weighed 64 pounds!  Domestic turkeys are bred to grow very fast, very large.  This significantly shortens their lifespan because they grow too large for their bodies. Euthanasia was the only humane option.  Detective Stabler enjoyed five months of happiness exploring Happy Trails alongside his best friend, Marge.
