How will you celebrate Thanksgiving this year? I plan to join some friends for a home-cooked vegan meal. Whether you enjoy cooking, eating out or carrying in, you have options for a very vegan Thanksgiving. But first, let’s watch a new Mercy for Animals commercial:
According to Mercy for Animals…
More than 300 million turkeys are killed in the U.S. every year – 40 million for Thanksgiving dinners alone. Most turkeys killed for food are raised in unnatural conditions, crammed by the thousands into windowless warehouses, where disease, smothering and heart attacks are common. Turkeys are drugged and bred to grow so large, so quickly that their legs are often unable to withstand their own weight. Countless birds slowly starve to death within inches of food after they become crippled and are unable to move.
