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.
