Make Christmas kinder for turkeys

Published 04/12/2013

CHRISTMAS is often thought of as a time of goodwill to all and peace on Earth. But for the millions of turkeys killed for Christmas dinners it is anything but a time of peace.

Often raised in filthy, crowded conditions and then slaughtered at just a few months old, life for turkeys is short and miserable.

But it needn't be this way. You can order Animal Aid's free booklet, Compassionate Christmas, including meat-free festive recipes, by calling 017 3236 4546, or emailing
