Lexington, Ky. -- PETA's controversial "Turkey
Terror" ad could be airing in tens of thousands of living rooms across
the Lexington area any day now. That's because the group is currently
negotiating with local TV stations to air the ad several times a day in the
weeks leading up to Thanksgiving. The ad promises to give residents pause
before they make the centerpiece of their holiday tables the corpse of a
In the ad, a shaky voice takes over a grocery-store
intercom, saying, "Do exactly as I say and nobody gets hurt! Resist, and
innocent creatures will be beaten …
while countless people will be poisoned at random by food laced with deadly
bacteria." The scene ends when the voice is revealed to belong to a
"turkey," who says, "It's your choice, but if you know what's
good for you, you'll meet my one simple demand: Go vegetarian!"
"We're encouraging all Lexington residents to try a
delicious Tofurky feast this Thanksgiving: all the flavor and texture of turkey
but without the terror of factory farms and slaughterhouses," says PETA
Executive Vice President Tracy Reiman. "After all, why not give turkeys a
reason to be thankful at Thanksgiving, too?"
Approximately 250 million turkeys are killed in the U.S.
every year—more than 45 million for Thanksgiving dinners alone. In nature,
turkeys are protective and loving parents as well as spirited explorers who can
climb trees and run as fast as 18 miles per hour. But turkeys killed for food
are crammed into filthy warehouses, where disease, smothering, and heart
attacks are common. Turkeys are drugged and bred to grow such unnaturally large
upper bodies that their legs often become crippled under the weight. A PETA
undercover investigation of turkey factory farms documented that workers
stomped on birds' heads, held birds' heads under water, and punched, threw,
kicked, and bludgeoned live birds.

Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights? Read more.
