Between April and July, 2006, PETA undercover investigators worked as "live hangers"-the people who receive live birds and shackle them for slaughter-at a Butterball turkey plant in Ozark, Arkansas. PETA's investigators witnessed despicable acts of cruelty to animals that would horrify any kind person. This one plant abuses and kills approximately 50,000 birds each day.

Although birds constitute more than 98 percent of the land animals eaten in the United States, the U.S. Department of Agriculture refuses to protect birds in its enforcement of the only federal law designed to protect animals at slaughter, the Humane Methods of Slaughter Act (HMSA).

You can help protect birds by filling out the form below, which will automatically send a letter to your representative in Congress asking him or her to ensure that birds are protected by the HMSA.
This only takes a minute of your time. Please go to and send a letter to your U.S. representative in Congress.
