Bristol shoppers to "feather" turkey in veggie Christmas pledge

SHOPPERS in Bristol will be encouraged to go veggie this Christmas by adding their names to a giant turkey pledge on Wednesday in the city centre. People will be able to sign special paper feathers, which will be placed on a large visual display, as part of the seasonal campaign by Bristol-based animal group Viva!. Free leaflets and information on going veggie and what Viva! call a compassionate Christmas, will also be available. Viva! are calling on consumers to help bring Peace to ALL by not eating turkey or any other animal this Christmas.

"Freedom Foods turkeys" covered in blood

THOUSANDS of turkeys destined for dinner tables across the UK have been discovered in "appalling" conditions during a recent undercover investigation. Many birds filmed by vegetarian campaigning group Viva! had leg deformities and injuries, with some birds demonstrating difficulty walking. Others had facial injuries including bloody, wounded snoods. The Midlands farm, owned by Attwells and Seafield Pedigrees claims to be RSPCA Freedom Foods Accredited*. Findings have prompted tough criticism of the scheme, from Viva! as it supposedly represents high animal welfare standards.
