This is just too damn important


Recommended Posts

to let anything get in the way of spreading this news around far and wide, so I am posting it on this forum as well. Please forward to any sympathetic people or vegan friendly forums:


From DawnWatch:


Every weekend CBS lets viewers choose from three possible segments that will air the following Friday evening on the "Assignment America" portion of the CBS Evening News. About six weeks ago we put in our votes for the Best Friends rescue of dogs from Lebanon and we got to see that issue covered. Today, Saturday November 11, one of the three choices is:


"Thanksgiving is almost here, and it's never been a better time to be a turkey — at least a wild one. Steve could report on the latest efforts to save them ... from your dinner plate."


While most of us have cuddled dogs and cats, not everybody has cuddled turkeys. If you haven't, I urge you to get yourself to a farm animal sanctuary for a "feed the turkey" day before Thanksgiving. You may be pleasantly surprised to find how sweet and affectionate the turkeys are -- how they love to be petted and might even fall asleep in your arms. Whether or not you have had the pleasure of meeting any turkeys yet, please vote to give them some much needed compassionate coverage at this time of year. And please forward this alert to other compassionate folks immediately; voting closes at 12am Sunday.


Go to http://tinyurl.com/y8t7x3 to read more about the selection, then click on "Vote Now."


Yours and the animals',

Karen Dawn
