Zombie: Just Say ‘No’ You Turkey
It is a response to the Butterball Turkey talk line which offers tips on how to boil, broil, roast and toast the seasonal animal, which Zombie thinks is more like the plot of a horror movie than a cooking resource.
Defending what he calls gentle, smart and social birds on PETA’s holiday hotline, Zombie warns that Butterball Turkey, and other meat companies, torture turkeys before they end up in the grocery stores.
It may seem obvious that animals are killed en-masse for distribution to stores, but he reveals some utterly despicable behaviour discovered by undercover PETA workers.
“In one Butterball slaughter house, PETA found a worker sexually assaulting the birds, and another stomping on a bird’s head until its skull exploded,” he says on the pre-recorded hotline.
