White House Demonstration for Turkeys

Regarding the turkey “pardoning” ceremony at the White House, the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette noted that:

“While no protesters were present Wednesday, three activists with United Poultry Concerns on a cold day earlier this month [Nov. 21] stood on the edge of the park across the street from the White House and passed out fliers urging people to ‘discover a new tradition.’ Their flier says domestic turkeys are fattened rapidly, causing them to be lame and have underdeveloped organs.

A banner spread across the leaves in Lafayette Park asked, ‘Why have a headless turkey with dead wings and leg stumps for dinner?’”
