Going Home

The following was taken from UPC Poultry Press Winter 2015-2016

This painting is titled, Going Home by artist and Canadian farmed animal cruelty investigator Twyla Francois, who writes “Sophie and her sister Katie escaped during loading for slaughter and hid in a ditch until we found them. They feared our hands for months….Sadly, both Katie and Sophie died young from congestive heart failure.” Today’s turkeys have been so genetically modified for abnormal growth rates and sizes that heart attacks, lameness and other infirmities are commonplace in a bird who, in Nature, walks, runs, lies, even swims with pleasure and ease.
