Well I had not -- any animal rights group.
Comparing to traditional Thanksgiving date these two -- on fight Lindsey Wright is with the group.
Thanks joins us right now Lindsay can't be serious about this campaign you cannot think.
Well you know from our standpoint Thanksgiving should be a time for celebration with our families.
And not a time for animal abuse and you know turkeys may not be as familiar to us as the dogs and cats that we share -- west.
But they have the same capacity to suffer and to experience pain.
We think that that's something that kids in -- understands I think there are a lot of give everybody and enjoy -- -- -- You put a dog's head on -- and you know it's stupid do you just know it's stupid.
And you know what you -- adults and adults have to get out of here this is stupid so now you're going to their kids.
Well I think it's thought provoking and we certainly hope that.
This discussion of this billboard -- spark some discussions between children and their parents kids who maybe don't want to see the -- corpse of a bird in the middle of their holiday table.
And that these kids will have the opportunity to enjoy a humane feast you know now they obliterated -- -- community out there these day.
I'm glad you asked founder and number of grade a vegetarian and vegan options now.
Roll spying companies like -- for keys.
Field roasting -- dean and they have all the taste and texture.
That a traditional.
-- Turkey would count but without the cruelty and of course the class stronger saturated fat as well souls are really easy to find nowadays we have some great recipes also on our website of -- and -- -- -- Subject in this would apply.
Success I mean whatever way we're getting any of these animals this rules -- stop it.
Certainly you know we always want to encourage people to try out a -- diet because it's the -- saying that we can do for our own health.
For the animals and for the environment and so.
Yeah I mean I think it is an apt comparison whether it's a chicken and a dog or.
You know Turkey in a -- because all those animals are Centene beings they can experienced pain and fear and they don't wanna -- And thankfully there are a lot of mock meat alternatives out there that make making especially when there -- -- Preachers that are raised to be removed part of the human food supply Turkey's vs dogs that last time I checked we're not.
It just meant to be companions you don't distinguish.
Well you know in the sense that all of those animals common share at the same five census.
They have feelings -- and a will to live to raise their young into engaged in their natural behaviors.
And if you look at turkeys today they're basically Franken Turkey's what's winding up on American tables now.
These birds are bread and genetically manipulated its girl so big -- So quickly they can even it stand upright a lot of times they suffer heart attacks come from their own massive -- They can't even reproduce naturally they have to be artificially inseminated and and that's something that I think no American really wants to get behind.
Wow why I really don't know less than a long ago when you know one of the Thanksgiving is sort of a little girl's rating that's sort of how.
Animals are treated -- you seem to zero in on the holidays to just make people CEO.
You know god also guilty about just eating meat and you don't like -- -- -- purity and that's great.
But then you're more or less saying of anyone who don't who doesn't share that point of view.
You're gonna just so discussed them and make them feel guilty.
They won't even celebrate the holiday and you know that argument falls on deaf ears when you bring it.
-- to -- parents and adults so now you're working on our kids which I find it and of itself -- Well please you know we want everyone to celebrate and enjoy the holiday is now you don't -- you know you are here aren't waiting -- -- eating the Turkey.
-- beating fight and they're looking at Fido sit down there and say you know he all of this -- inside.
And and this is part of -- we don't just run this billboard which of course is what we're talking about today.
But we also send troops of pilgrims out and people in Turkey -- to give away.
Dream he can tell freaky routes on -- have that positive message so people can walk away knowing that there's another option out there and and not just feeling bad about themselves -- where they're -- Yeah -- that is that is why.
When judges and have a Turkey today -- whether it's still some debate say it like turf.
I needed I don't like the idea going after -- -- -- that ends up looking like a bird.
If you don't miss -- to meet or you just have a guilt complex about.
Well I'll tell you what Neil I didn't stop eating meat because I didn't like the taste and I was horrified by the idea that some bird would be -- -- live -- in a vat of hot water.
For any -- that I was a part of the and that's the cruelty that I didn't want to pay to support.
And so I think a lot of you have -- certainly hopefully whatever it is in this shape of a Turkey yesterday.
I don't this year actually haven't told -- -- -- -- and -- dean Reynolds but they're all kind of just oblong shapes you can find that fake Turkey ship if you want them on or.
Thank you very much we'll see how this all goes Lindsay.
