Before carving into a Butterball turkey on Thanksgiving, everyone must watch this
video.

A new Mercy For Animals hidden-camera investigation gives a shocking look behind
the closed doors of Butterball factory farms—revealing the heartbreaking cruelty
and neglect animals face at the hands of the world's largest turkey producer

The startling investigation comes less than a year after MFA exposed horrific cruelty
at another Butterball factory farm—a groundbreaking case that led to the first-ever
felony cruelty to animals conviction related to birds used for food production in US
history.

MFA's latest investigation exposes an ongoing culture of cruelty at Butterball,
including:

• workers kicking and stomping on birds, dragging them by their fragile wings and
necks, and maliciously throwing turkeys onto the ground or on top of other birds;

• birds suffering from serious untreated illnesses and injuries, including open sores,
infections, and broken bones; and

• workers grabbing birds by their wings or necks and violently slamming them into
tiny transport crates with no regard for their welfare.

These abuses are virtually identical to the acts of extreme cruelty and violence
documented by MFA at a Butterball turkey factory farm in 2011.

Following the investigation, MFA immediately went to law enforcement with
extensive video footage and a detailed legal complaint outlining the culture of
cruelty at Butterball. Law enforcement is now investigating.

As this investigation reveals, before they end up on Thanksgiving dinner plates,
turkeys killed for Butterball are routinely crowded into filthy warehouses, left to
die from festering, bloody wounds, and thrown, kicked, and beaten by factory farm
workers.

Thankfully, concerned consumers can help prevent the needless suffering of turkeys
at the hands of Butterball by making informed choices. This year, please consider
giving the turkeys a reason to be thankful by carving out a new Thanksgiving
tradition and digging in to any number of delicious vegetarian, turkey-free
alternatives.
