A Farm Worker Responds
After our investigation into turkey farming was seen in the national press, we received the following email:
Not that it means much in the scheme of things. But I worked yesterday plucking turkeys on an organic farm. There were 300 birds and I began plucking about 8 in the morning. These birds were healthy before they died. But by the time I finished I was very depressed and I was in tears. These poor birds, even though they were allowed to roam free, were terribly traumatised and you could see they had met their death with fear and panic. I will never eat meat again as long as I live and will never be involved in meat production again. I just wish I had done this years ago and I am going to set up a standing order to help you guys in your work. I have told all my family and friends and I hope they change too.
