This is a very serious situation... I mean the 2 dozen surviving turkeys are
going to need some serious counseling and therapy all provided to you by PETA
and Obama Care. It's not like these turkeys weren't going
to the slaughter house anyway.
I think turkeys should be outlawed.I mean, after all, isn't
that what our society does, if a potato is thrown at someone and they get hurt,
their is a lawsuit and soon a ban on potatoes, or guns, or toothpicks. Instead, why don't we try to drive more safely, not text while
driving, be nice to neighbors, not point and adhere to a host of things we once
learned in kindergarten.I hope not too many turkeys suffered and
that the water is still safe to drink.
@ DuckHunter:I was listening to WKRP last year and learned that
turkeys couldn't fly either.Great comment, I still miss that
EmbarrassedUtahn: not making light of the accident. But if we can't find
the occasional laughter in events that are screaming for a joke then maybe we
need to. You know. Laugh.
Some times accidents happen. Who knows if a rutted road tossed a lite load in
the rail. There are a lot of dangers. Wind will knock trucks over. It's
good that that the driver will go home. It could of been worse.
Embarrassed Utahn: Do you have evidence that the driver was going too fast or
are you making an assumption. It seems to me like it could just as easily be
due to an equipment failure or, since the driver can't remember how he got
out of the truck, maybe he had a medical condition that caused him to have a
seizure or for some other reason lose consciousness. Yes, there is a cause, but
jumping to conclusions without having the facts is unwise and often brings
incorrect conclusions. At this point, I am concerned about a speedy recovery
for the driver and investigating to find the actual cause before I start placing
blame on the driver.
If he was thrown from the truck, it would seem he was not wearing his seatbelt.
Seatbelts are not only useful for collisions, but aid to driver stability in
controlling the vehicle. It would seem he should share in responsibility for
the damages done. No man is an island.
Equally sad is that a lot of people here show complete disregard and make like
it's all fun and games.Disgusting is a better descriptor.
So the driver "ran into trouble"and "for some unknown
reason ran into the guard rail" according to police....It's
not rocket science, the irresponsible driver was going too fast, he didn't
run into trouble, he caused a whole lot of trouble and should be held fully
accountable."Sorry, I screwed up" is not an acceptable
answer. These types of "unknown reasons" for accidents are way too
commonplace and trucking companies need to be held fully accountable for the
people they hire!
Early Thanksgiving for the fishies!Gobble, gobble!!
"Right now our director of Animal Welfare Services is on sight to ensure the
safe removal of any dead, live or injured turkeys..."Today I
learned there's such a career as a "director of animal welfare
services." In that job on a turkey farm, does one feel like a failure as
"As God is my witness I thought turkeys could swim".
Looks like Deer Creek gobbled them all up.
Just as a funny: when will the next of kin be notified?
