Having Turkey For Thanksgiving?
Are you planning on having turkey for Thanksgiving? If so, try to watch the next two videos about turkeys before they are slaughtered. Maybe after watching these videos you might decided not to eat Turkey on Thanksgiving. The first video is undercover and shows baby turkeys being ground up alive and more. Second video is no better. The first thing you can do about helping animals is to not eat them.

A new undercover investigation by Compassion Over Killing reveals the systematic cruelty and violence turkeys face before being killed for the Thanksgiving holiday. The sickening video footage was taken inside Hargin, Inc., a turkey breeding factory in Minnesota, and shows workers violently throwing birds by their fragile wings and necks and sick or injured turkeys left to languish without proper veterinary care.
Since factory farmed turkeys have been purposely bred to rapidly gain weight, these birds are no longer capable of breeding on their own. At turkey breeding facilities, workers manually "milk" male turkeys for their semen and then shackle females upside down and forcing a plastic tube inside them for insemination.
Eggs from this facility are sold to Willmar Poultry, the nation's largest turkey hatchery, and subject of another undercover investigation showing baby turkeys being ground up alive in giant macerating machined and mutilated without painkillers.
Unfortunately, this type of extreme animal abuse is considered standard practice at turkey factory farms nationwide. MFA's undercover investigations at multiple Butterball facilities have exposed workers viciously kicking and stomping on birds, dragging them by their fragile wings and necks, and maliciously throwing turkeys onto the ground or into transport trucks in full view of company management.
Based on MFA's investigation, numerous Butterball workers were charged and convicted of cruelty to animals after being caught on video bashing in the heads of live birds with a metal bar. The investigation also resulted in the first-ever felony conviction for cruelty to factory-farmed birds in US history.
