Three domestic turkeys were being raffled by locals at Yellville’s “Turkey Trot” festival in Arkansas. To “get back at PETA” for our objections to the “Turkey Drop”—an unofficial component of the event during which wild turkeys are hurled from airplanes—a cruel woman convinced the raffle’s organizers to sell the birds to her so that should could throw these domestic, flightless birds off the courthouse roof! A PETA activist intervened and discouraged the sellers from aiding and abetting in an obvious act of cruelty. One bird was then purchased by a nice family who intends to keep her as a companion, and our activist rescued the remaining two. One of these birds had suffered injuries to her face and chest, possibly from having been kicked. PETA sought veterinary care for her, and she is now recovering nicely. We scored a great home for the rescued pair, now named Lori and Walfredo, and transported them from Arkansas to Eastern Ohio, where they are both adjusting wonderfully. Their new family is overjoyed to have them.
