Animal rights group seeks Utah roadside memorial for dead turkeys

(Reuters) - Animal rights activists want to erect a roadside memorial placard to honor hundreds of "terrified turkeys" killed in a tractor-trailer accident on a Utah highway last week, transportation officials said on Friday.

The sign, which an official said was not likely to be approved, would be placed near the crash site in the rural town of Wallsburg, where a truck hauling about 700 live, crated turkeys crashed through a guard rail and landed in a reservoir on April 24.

"In memory of the hundreds of terrified turkeys who died here in a truck crash. Try vegan,” is the proposed message on the sign that would also display the image of a turkey. Placement would be under a standard Utah traffic sign that says “Drive Safely. Buckle Up.”
