Give up turkey

Updated on September 13, 2013

By Joanne Kathleen Farrell

Give up Turkey! If you only knew what you were eating.

The more I learn about factory farming the more I revisit how cruel a society we can be. In retrospect of viewing some of the video's that expose the shocking evil that takes place in these institutions of money making, I question how the CEO's of these corporations live with themselves. Learning of the endless cruel acts of violence that takes place in these factories has changed me. Sometimes I think it has taken a part of my soul away. If you could see the terrified faces of these turkey's being tortured and abused day after day in unthinkable ways. They are zapped with electricity by feeding crew, thrown, kicked, hung upside down, and in many cases transported alive. They are piled on top of each other to save $ by not having to use a refrigerator truck. Males are ground alive. So Please, please don't not buy turkey.

The more we buy it, the more we encourage these practices to continue. A great replacement for this is smoked tofu. Try grilling it with yellow squash and onoins. With a little basil and oregano it is a great way to forget all about wanting turkey. Makes a great sandwich as well. Luv, Jan

      Every person that eats meat should have the experience of killing it for their dinner. They'll enjoy the meat less, have a healthier and somber appreciation for the life that is taken to feed them, and be less wasteful.

      I don't think you read the article. I have no problems with farms. Factories are not farms and no animal should be tortures. See Farm to Fridge and then please write back. This isn't about LIKING HOW IT"S MADE. I don't think beating an animal repeatedly has anything to do with production. Again watch some of the video's made by hidden camera. You have no idea how sick some of these people are or what you are really eating.

      We don't have to like how they make it, but we shouldn't just stop eating meat. I would think that every farmed animal is treated badly. I don't like that, but I'm not just going to stop eating it. Instead if just not eating it, you should try to change how they treat the turkeys.
