British singer Richard Ashcroft bought his son a turkey for Christmas - to keep as a pet.
The former The Verve frontman is a vegetarian and his nine year old, Sonny, recently decided to give up meat, too.
The youngster wanted to make sure he saved a bird from slaughter over the festive season (09) - so his dad bought him one to keep at their home in Ledbury, England.
Ashcroft says, “My son has recently turned vegetarian and he said that he wanted a turkey for Christmas.
“I travel to the butchers quite a lot and it is the finest in the land. I have definitely bought the luckiest turkey in Ledbury.”
