There was no transparency or public discussion about the killing of our
turkeys either because the powers that be know is wrong and know that
the public would object. These turkeys are companions to many, attract
tourists and even have helped people meet & bond with one another. I
have so many happy memories of our turkeys. They were a real comfort
& joy. Also a learning experience for the whole family.
If nothing else you have a chance to stand against cruelty and to be on the
record against harming innocent creatures. I also hope this petition can
prevent future turkey round ups as the plan is that this will be just the first
of many. The USDA has grown too powerful. They are killing the wildlife in our
parks & communities. We now have empty lakes where there used to be geese
and now we will have more empty space for humans to throw their trash where
there used to be beautiful birds. I am deeply ashamed of human impact on all of
Earth's creatures. We are robbing future generations of the experience of nature.
We can only fight this together.
