I didn't get an e-mail but I saw the video and it was HORRIFIC! They were like eating the others, I can't believe we ever bought those, I just want to kick them and grab them by their necks!

I went into the grocery store today and saw some frozen ones and couldn't help but wonder how they had been treated.

At this point, I think its even more important that we advocate to our friends and families farm fresh, cruelty-free raised turkeys for their holiday tables.

I raise my own. Haven't bought store bought in years. Mine are happy free ranging. I'm not bragging but, I think I have the best turkey sausage around.

Just watched the video. Not pretty. While I in no way condone the actions of the people I saw in the video, I take the source with a HUGE grain of salt. I personally don't trust these "Animal Welfare" groups as far as I can throw them. Is some of the footage staged? I wouldn't put it past them. Some of the damage may well be a result of toms fighting amongst themselves.

Still, nothing condones what is done in the video, good animal husbandry (even in an intensive system) can't behave like that.
