Earlier today I was very pleased to read there have been several arrests made of employees of Butterball. Employees were caught on camera kicking, violently hitting, and dragging the turkeys in efforts to move them. You can often get a general understanding of a person’s character based on their treatment of persons, animals, or otherwise defenseless beings at their mercy. It’s a wonderful feeling knowing there are people who care enough about the welfare of these defenseless animals to involve the authorities.
You can read the brief article and see the related video HERE.
Just be warned – the video content is unpleasant and unsettling.
I would certainly encourage anyone who enjoys eating turkey and other poultry to comlpetely avoid Butterball products and the products of any other company that allows this sort of animal cruelty.
