Northwest Kills 9,000 Turkeys

I have no idea how I missed this 2 weeks ago:  Northwest Airlines was transporting 11,000 baby turkeys from Detroit to San Francisco and, somehow, killed 9,000 of them.  The turkeys, which were going to Zacky Farms in Fresno, were 1 day old and died from overcrowding after the airline did not follow instructions to not place all of the birds on one plane.  2 quick notes: 
1) There’s something oddly sad about this.  Usually the deaths of 9,000 turkeys would be delicious.  This doesn’t seem delicious. 

2) For some reason I remember Zacky Farms from a Ronco Showtime Rotisserie infomercial.  That’s neither here nor there.
