Shocking turkey abuse hidden from public (VIDEO)
As the nation sits down for Thanksgiving dinner on Thursday, most people are likely thinking more about the score of the football game or how much more food they can fit on their plate than where their turkey came from.
But an undercover investigation by Compassion Over Killing shows that turkey factory farms force turkeys into deplorable conditions, including hens getting stuck in nesting machines, causing injuries so severe as to be immediately fatal.
RT's Ameera David shows the undercover video and talks with Erica Meier, the executive director for Compassion Over Killing, about other ways your turkey is a vastly different animal than the one the Pilgrims ate at the first Thanksgiving.
