GULF BREEZE, Fla. –  Investigators say a neighbor and his friend used a bow and arrow to shoot and kill a Panhandle family’s pet turkey for their Thanksgiving dinner.

Sheriff’s deputies arrested two Santa Rosa County teens on Monday. They’re charged with armed burglary, armed trespassing, theft of livestock and animal cruelty.

The teens told deputies they planned to eat the 30-pound turkey for Thanksgiving.

So not only did they lose a beloved family pet, but they also lost their Thanksgiving dinner?  Unacceptable.

Is this the most depressing Thanksgiving news item of 2012?
