What if Alexa’s New Butterball Skill Told the Truth?

What if the new Alexa Butterball Skill told the truth about preparing turkeys for Thanksgiving?

Butterball’s real Alexa skill won’t tell you this, so we will: Before they end up as holiday centerpieces, gentle, sensitive turkeys spend their short lives on factory farms, where thousands of them are packed into dark sheds with no more than 3.5 square feet of space per bird. They’re genetically bred to grow as quickly as possible, and they often become crippled under their own weight.

During an investigation at a Butterball slaughterhouse in Ozark, Arkansas, PETA eyewitnesses documented that workers punched and stomped on live turkeys, slammed them against walls, and worse. Turkeys sold by the company are killed in a process that involves hanging live birds by the legs, slitting their throats, and then dumping them into scalding-hot water in defeathering tanks.

An estimated 245 million turkeys are raised and killed for their flesh every year in the U.S. At least 44 million of them are killed for Thanksgiving alone, and more than 22 million die for Christmas.

Give thanks without taking lives. Celebrate a vegan holiday season and spare turkeys—and all animals—a life filled with pain and a terrifying death. Every day, more and more people are making the ethical, compassionate, sustainable, and healthy choice to ditch meat, eggs, and dairy “products” and go vegan.
