Turkey "Pardons." Why?

Jason Hernandez, whose sentence was commuted by President Obama in 2013:
“I could never figure out why that turkey deserves a second chance, I remember one of the most demoralizing times in prison for me and for other prisoners was Thanksgiving. And that was because every year we would see the president of the United States, the most powerful man in the world, use his executive power to pardon a turkey – an animal. And yet we, who despite being prisoners are still human, were rotting away in prison for decades.”
