Special: A Wild Turkey On The Prison Yard

Thanksgiving is coming, and while a lot of turkeys end up on plates, there are some turkeys that fly free… even in the most unexpected places. In this special Thanksgiving episode from the Uncuffed archives, Spoon Jackson and Joe Kirk present the story of a turkey that landed itself in Solano State Prison.

Happy Thanksgiving from Uncuffed.

They can fly. They're fast. And they're mean as hell.
