2020 investigation revealed systemic improper stunning of turkeys before they are brutally decapitated.

Most of the turkeys are dragged upside-down through an electrical stun bath, and the majority of these were found to exhibit signs of consciousness afterwards, while others were seen lifting their heads and avoiding the stun bath entirely. Because of their large wingspan, their wings often hit the electrified water first, giving them extremely painful electric shocks. A small number of turkeys were beheaded without any prior stunning in inverted cones, a practice that is arguably in breach of Victoria’s vaguely-worded animal welfare legislation.
