Lara was rescued and was lucky to live her short life at a sanctuary.
Sadly she had to be euthanised as her legs gave way under her huge body and she was suffering. She was given so much love and her last moments were full of treats, a comfortable place to lay and some pain killers to help ease her pain.
The 1st photo below is of Lara before her last night and the 2nd one, the morning before she was euthanised.
Factory-farmed turkeys have been genetically altered and bred to grow bigger and faster in order to meet the consumer demand for breast meat. Inducing such rapid body growth creates a number of health problems for these birds. Both male and female factory-farmed turkeys are almost twice the size of their wild counterparts. As a result factory-farmed turkeys suffer painful health problems such as crippled legs and swollen joints. They have also been so genetically altered that a range of muscle and skeletal disorders often make them barely able to walk.
R.I.P beautiful Girl. You were/are so loved and will never be forgotten. I'm glad I got to say goodbye. 💔💕

Discovered this glorious @sunbum sunscreen before heading to Hawaii earlier this year thanks to @milkyrose90 & @angie.jean.3 for recommending it. Now it'll forever remind me of care free hangouts on tropical beaches. 🌊🌴🌞 Got the liquid lotion and the spray and was highly impressed by both! Lightweight, beautiful coconut smell, plus they're cruelty free & vegan! Definitely my summer go-to when needing extra protection for fun in the sun. #beachbashcontest @influenster
