Killing a Turkey
Bill Lueders, writer for
The Daily Page, shared
his experience of not only witnessing the slaughtering of an animal
for food, but also his participation in it.
Not a vegetarian, Lueders, like
most people, has been having others kill the animals he eats. He
felt ashamed and decided to do it himself and therefore requested
help from his friend Ken Wulf, who owned a small family farm, and
would allow him to slaughter a turkey for Thanksgiving dinner. When
the time came, it turned out than killing the animal was harder than
he ever thought.

Most people are far removed from
their food production, and have never seen an animal being
slaughtered. It is a terrifying, brutal process that if everyone
witnessed it, many more people would forgo eating animals.
