Ben Franklin called me a “bird of courage”
On Thursday, PETA’s website went live with the latest investigation of a slaughterhouse in Ozark, Arkansas. 40 days of undercover work between April and July 2006 exposed acts of cruelty at a Butterball turkey plant. Investigation log notes include birds being slammed against transport trucks and walls, punched and kicked, hung by their broken legs, used as punching bags, and even sexual assault, all due to frustration, boredom or desensitization of the workers.
PETA is asking local prosecutors to file cruelty charges. You can also help by sending an email or (even better) a letter to your congress person, as well as sending the undercover footage to your friends and family.
