from BBC News:-
An animal welfare group has called for a government inquiry after two poultry workers were given community service after being filmed beating turkeys.
Norwich magistrates were told that Daniel Palmer, 27, and Neil Allan, 30, both from Dereham, Norfolk, used poles “like baseball bats” to hit the birds.
People really are fucking morons. Turns out Alex went to school with one of these guys.
Oh, and they got a 200 hour community order. Nice.
