Former Turkey Farm Workers Indicted

Three former turkey farm workers who were videotaped stomping on birds' heads and wringing their necks have been indicted on 19 counts of animal abuse, 11 of them felony charges that could carry significant jail time. Each felony charge is punishable by up to five years in jail and up to a $5,000 fine. The misdemeanor charges carry possible sentences of six months and up to $2,000 in fines. PETA President Ingrid E. Newkirk said, "If anyone at home wants to guarantee that they won't support such cruelty," ... "they should leave turkey off the grocery list and try some vegetarian recipes."

This type of abuse is not an isolated case but a common occurrence in today's factory farms. The most effective way to show compassion to God's farmed animals is to transition to a plant-base diet.
