Thanksgiving is... quite the holiday.
Thanksgiving is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November in the United States, and the second Monday of October in Canada. North America ritually and enthusiastically celebrates the official holiday for 'giving thanks' by supporting the exploitation, confinement and slaughter of the native, majestic bird that has been bred into a mutated creature of mutation and misery. WTF North America!!!
Butterball, the worldβs leading turkey producer (breeds, βraisesβ and slaughters hundreds of millions of turkeys) has been caught abusing and neglecting their birds in several facilities, year after year! π‘ http://butterballabuse.com/
As if that's not enough, a Lilydale slaughterhouse in Canada (MY COUNTRY), was just caught torturing turkeys to death: http://lilydaleturkeytorture.ca/
