There is a certain logic in it.

If you think that animals have the same rights as humans, then it follows that humans have no more rights than animals.

I see they were too chicken to actually threaten in person.

If god didn't want people to eat animals he wouldn't have made them out of food.

Not sticking up for the veganistas at all, but it is a touch on the odd / morbid side to come along and pick your turkey, give it a name, care for it (Turning it into a family pet?). Then whipping its head off and stuffing it ready for the big day in December?

I agree, why make them so tasty if not meant to eat them!

Do you consider farmers odd/morbid?

Are you seriously suggesting that criminal damage and death threats are an expression of freedom of speech?

If your going to kill and eat it, why not give it a good life 1st!

the argument is that you're making people aware of where their food comes from....

How do you know human isn't the tastiest meat?

If he told you, he'd have to cook you.

Picking a live Turkey is a very odd concept. Why not just butcher them and let people pick which one they want that way? They are all turkeys and ultimately will taste similar with similar textures. Most people can't cook a turkey to save their life anyway and would be better off with a frozen one

Great idea to spray the pheasants, they’ve been shot and will now probably be dumped rather than eaten. Well done.

No, not at all, its their job and the animals are their livelihood.

What I think is odd is inviting people to 'take care' of the turkeys, give them names and effectively turn them into pets, prior to slaughter and eating them.

I have no issue with eating them (I do myself!) and I have no issue with farmers giving them a good life and then slaughtering them for me to eat. Its the emotional relationship building with the end consumer that I honestly find strange for those end customers to want to experience.
