Plainville Farms in Pennsylvania touted itself as a place that raised "certified humane" turkeys. But a PETA investigator got the truth on video tape: Workers kicking, choking, strangling turkeys. Workers simulating sexual acts with the birds. All in all, the video was enough to get Pennsylvania State Police to get prosecutors in six counties to file the most defendants with the most charges ever in a case of cruelty to factory farmed animals. Dan Paden, PETA VP of Evidence Analysis, breaks down the case in conversation with Emil Guillermo on the PETA podcast.
