Pardon ALL the turkeys!

The Truth About 'Humane' Turkey


The Truth About 'Humane' Turkey


One of the largest turkey suppliers in the nation, Norbest touts its practices as “humane, with the health and comfort of the birds of paramount importance.” But DxE’s Open Rescue team found sickening cruelty.

Cannibalism

Live birds were being ripped to pieces in the crowded, filthy conditions. 
 

Disease

DxE found tumors and sores on many of the birds, as well as evidence of other serious diseases.

Mutilation

Even at ‘humane’ farms, birds have their faces burned and their toes cut off -- all without painkillers.

A Holiday Miracle


A Holiday Miracle


Millions of turkeys die every year on Thanksgiving. But Abby was the one in a million who would be saved. 


Stricken with disease

Abby was dragging herself across the farm and deathly ill. A terrible disease was spreading across the farm.

Fighting to survive

Unable to lift her head or walk, Abby was not able to reach food or water. Like so many others, Abby was destined to die.  

The Miracle of Rescue

DxE rushed Abby to receive emergency medical care and brought her to an animal sanctuary.

Turkeys are friends not food


Turkeys are friends not food


Turkeys are incredibly social animals, as loving as a dog or cat.

Turkeys love their friends

Turkeys like Abby will sit on your lap for hours on end, begging for a belly scratch. They recognize and form bonds with specific individuals.

Turkeys love to learn

Among the most curious animals, turkeys will stare inquisitively at new objects or people. They often chirp to show their joy and excitement from these new experiences. 

Turkeys love to be free

In the wild, turkeys are agile creatures who can fly great distances. While domesticated turkeys have lost their ability to fly, they still love to roam!
