Quick...call the TCU: The Turkey Crimes Unit! They'll see to it that birds are not forced to fly! Is she at all concerned about the billion or so turkeys slaughtered for Thanksgiving dinner, or just the ones that get to fly first?

PETA should undergo a psychiatric evaluation.

Hurling a living being out of a plane or off of a building is cruelty to animals, plain and simple. I hope that this pilot is charged and convicted, and that this disgusting "tradition" is put to rest.

Why would anyone subject another sentient being to such torture and trauma? Thanksgiving is supposed to be about honoring each other and expressing gratitude. I hope the pilot is charged and never commits such a heinous act again.

These turkeys don't "fly," they drop to a terrifying death or severe injuries. This isn't amusing in the slightest--it's sickening and must be stopped.

Killing animals humanely for protein is one thing, barbaric in it's own right as it may be, but it is not on the level of torturing animals for fun. Those of you who cannot, or who refuse to, see the difference are incredibly ignorant. You are probably among the scum that throw kittens from moving vehicles, or who kick puppies for entertainment.
