If people who eat poultry etc; refused anything other than free range producers aproved byanimal welfare groups...not only would free range products become cheaper.....but the people themselves would feel better knowing they had contributed to a fairer kinder better world for all! ......If only :-(

Noted and signed! Thanks Cher!! This Thanksgiving I adopted 2 turkey girls from Farm Sanctuary. One for the Canadian season and one for the US. Truly horrible the way these poor birds are treated, with no love, no compassion and zero care!! They are not inanimate objects. They want to live their life as much as any living creature!! There's never any thanks for the poor turkey that went through hell to be the big centerpiece on someone's table. Guaranteed it didn't volunteer.

The turkeys have a hellish life, we don't celebrate thanksgiving here, but turkeys are fattened up for Christmas it's disgusting how these animals are treated. I already signed the petition thank you Cher.

TYVM of course turkeys feel pain -- whoever denies that is a dimwit -- my parrot screamed like hell when she got a toenail caught in a narrow place.
