Just the other day, a young female turkey was found hiding away in the corner of a free range farm shed in Petaluma, California. She managed to evade her captors on the day the transport truck came to haul away the other turkeys to be slaughtered for Thanksgiving. Apparently some worker found her hiding away, felt moved by her valiant effort, and contacted Animal Place, a local sanctuary. This 4-minute video documents her amazing story, her will to live and her rescue.
Something to be thankful for. Life itself.
Approximately 45 million turkeys will be killed for Thanksgiving day this year. Turkeys are exempt from even the most basic Federal anti-cruelty laws.
