Butterball Does Not Treat Their Turkeys Well (May be Disturbing)


Besides killing them and shipping them to supermarkets, this video was released by Mercy For Animals showing turkeys being mistreated before being sent off to slaughter. The below video may be disturbing for some people, so if you don’t like watching turkeys get beat up, don’t watch. Just know that going organic this Thanksgiving might not be a bad idea.

Found on gothamist.com.

I'd like to kick the shit out of a peacock. In Cocoa Beach they jump on the hood of your car and scratch the paint with their talons.

I always thought the greatest seasoning was a liberal dose of fear, plus a pinch of despair.  Then again, I like to tear the tails off live lobsters, and watch the cephalothorax crawl around the kitchen floor while the tail cooks.

Be a vegetarian?  Giving $ to Monsanto is 100X worse than buying a butterball turkey.

You'd expect this from kind of beating from Tyson but not Butterball.

If I didn't look like such a pretentious douche when I buy a free-range, grass-fed, organic, etc. Turkey, I might buy one. I blame hipsters.

Hey,Sherlock Holmes you realize they're sending these birds to be killed and processed for food - right? Fuck those turkeys, everyday our elderly are abused in nursing homes how about you point your fucking camera there asshole. Put your energy into saving people and we'll work our way back to Wildlife and crop animals - Cows, Pigs, Chickens, and Turkeys In that order.

There's def not a turkey shortage!.. Also, Organic doesn't have anything tondo with how it's killed. I've been to these kinds of plants, usually it's pretty much on the up & up.. Just stay away from 'mechanically separated' meat.. Eww

 The whole idea that someone might be concerned about animals being abused is just unfathomable to you, isn't it? Just can't wrap your mind around it, huh?

 2hrs?  Why not just eat it completely raw, rather than partially raw?

 @sidwasout  the brine changes the molecular structer of the bird, trust me it works. i still use a meat thermometer, have done 50 of them this way, it works. but yes, i used to think the same thing.

 At first there was a problem keeping the papers dry enough, and passing it around was tiring.  Moved up to a six-tube hookah, and it works great.  I go heavy on the herbs, of course.

 I've brined, and can see adding moisture helping through steaming action, perhaps, but 2hrs for a 20-pounder just seems a stretch.  If it works for you, though, more power to ya.  I tend to smoke 'em, anyway, so I'll generally take longer.
