Readers, I like to publish this riveting article by animal-rights activist Jim Mason every Thanksgiving. It’s in honor of the millions of turkeys that will be consumed during the coming week. After reading it, you may decide to eat something else! Many thanks to my friend Jim, co-author of the landmark book Animal Factories for taking the trouble to investigate this topic, and for allowing me to reprint it.
Working under these conditions week after week (Bill had been there for four years), these men had grown callous, rough, and brutal. Every bird went through their merciless hands at least once a week, week after week, until they were loaded up to be killed.
