Why We Butcher our own Turkey

OH MY GOD. HOW COULD YOU RASIE THAT ANIMAL AND THEN KILL IT?  HOW CRUEL!?  YOU ARE SO HEARTLESS!  THERE IS NOTHING KIND ABOUT KILLING. Ok, I get it.  I was vegetarian for SEVEN YEARS.  I have seen this mentality.   My choice to be vegetarian  was not always in the mindset of “killing animals is wrong.”  It was more in the mindset of “if I cant raise this meat myself, take its life, or hunt this meat I will...
