Umm....er......... no! It was actually my little brother......least he was the one who got caught They were little firecrackers, didn't hurt the turkeys, but they were so stupid, they would immediately go after a second when tossed in the pen!

My dad was an animal nutritionist working for the Univ. of Minn., we lived at a staff house on the turkey farm. I worked after school at the farm (12 years old), had to catch and weigh all the turkeys monthly!
Needless to say, I don't ever care to see another domestic turkey again!
Unless it is cooked to perfection and sitting on my dinner plate.

I had heard a rumor recently that PETA is in the process of trying to get rodeos banned, saying that roping calves and bulldogging is animal cruelty...anyone else heard this??

I think they've actually been working on that for a while. My step dad was a champion heeler in OK during the 80's and 90's, and he had run into this kind of thing many times.
