    Don't say that. I tried one of my cats 'treats' to find out (experimental purposes obviously) why she loved them so much. Chicken and cheese, not very nice at all. Lol

    This is a poor case, since turkeys are dumb as bricks. Pigs, however, are smarter than dogs. Though really, no animal should be forced to live a pathetic existence in order to provide an affordable meal option for the omnipotent human.

    I would also like to add plant-life to that last statement in between animal and should, with an "or" in between animal and plant-life. I propose eating other humans. But only the ones who die of natural causes or in horrible accidents. No suicide victims though, melancholy is contagious.

    Actually, turkeys are not "dumb as bricks." Someone should look up the reasons why Ben Franklin wanted the turkey to be the national bird of the United States.

    This didn't really disgust me, honestly.

    It gave me the same feeling I get when watching a product being manufactured (like a car being assembled), not watching people being tortured. I actually thought those machines were pretty cool... I didn't know you could process chicken that way, now I can see how they get so much of it into the stores. I always thought the idea of having a farmer go out kill one every time seemed a little inefficient given the scale we consume the stuff on.

    I think if they had to treat them more humanely, people would begin to see them in a more human light, and find it harder to process them at levels needed for consumption. This video was created by people with a vegetarian agenda.

    i watched the video. it was pretty sad, but i gotta say the video PETA made from inside a pig slaughterhouse was much more disturbing. how those people treated the piglets was truly disgusting.

    still, i love me some pork. i can't help myself.

    I looked up turkey intelligence and came upon the ironic conclusion that turkeys have recently gotten the short end of the stick in terms of survival intelligence because they've been bred domestically/in captivity for so many generations. Funny, that.

    Also, I dislike how emotionally-charged sensationalism is the only front seen by the average Joe in terms of vegetarian advocacy. I've read much more convincing arguments and studies that are more relative: a lot less meat (or basically, a diet of mostly plants) is a lot better for you. People want to shrug off what they view as attacks on their personal preference in diet if they feel demonized for "hurting the poor animals" just by eating.

    Yeu mean wild, naturally occuring turkies, which're all but extinct these days...

    The turkies yeu get in the store are brick stupid.

    The original wild turkey, however, is pretty clever as birds go. They also look virtually nothing like a 'real' turkey.

    Wild turkey's are pretty good at staying out of sight. I see them every now and then in the early morning and and late evening. I don't mind them so much, except around dusk when they won't shut up.
