Stop and think–could you imagine law enforcement offers taking the abuse of turkeys seriously twenty–or even ten–years ago? And remember, this isn’t some liberal city in California, it’s the heart of America’s poultry industry. Bit by bit, factory farmers are learning it’s not an “anything goes” playing field any more, and that are legal consequences for mistreating their animals.
