We don’t always get Cooper’s photos right on the first shot*. Here are some pics that didn’t make the cut.
* Due to the photographer and through no fault of the model, of course.
Cooper has a shop on Redbubble. She donates a percentage of her sales to her favorite bird rescues. Her latest donation is to Farm Sanctuary. She decided this year to adopt a turkey.
Sandy came to Farm Sanctuary from an evacuation site during the devastating 2016 Sand Fire in California. While the young turkey’s guardian had saved her the year before from Thanksgiving slaughter, Sandy still needed help. She had a painful foot infection, along with feather loss and wounds from the males in her enclosure. To give Sandy the best chance at a healthy life, the guardian relinquished her to Farm Sanctuary. Once in our care, Sandy made a full recovery and is now a bright, affectionate member of her flock.

Cooper recommends skipping the turkey this Thanksgiving. It’s all about the sides anyway.
