"Rescue action LVI & Support Joseph Dibee (February 2020)

This report contains two rescue actions. We took away 9 turkeys from people who made business of stealing, mutilating and destroying their lives. On the way to their new home I saw a young doe followed by another. I stopped the car, turned the engine off and watched them run across the field to the forest. I let tears and despair wet and wrinkle my eyes.

I thought of Lukas who was opening that tin door to turkeys and entering with me into the heavy air. I thought of Petra bending down to one of them to pet her on her wings which were so unnecessary for the life people prepared for her. I thought of another member of our team, I'm going to call her the Dachshund for now, who was standing and watching it speechless. I thought of how many of those rescued birds would survive the rescue action because I also took some that didn't have much chance. I thought of people who provided new home to those turkeys and how happy they made me. I thought of how many turkeys remained and for how much we might return.

Turkeys have beautiful eyes, you know?
