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. “In memory of the hundreds of terrified turkeys who died here in a truck crash. Buckle Up.” Only about two-dozen of the birds survived the crash, said Laura Cascada, a spokeswoman for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, the group applying for the sign. PETA filed their request with the Utah Department of Transportation on Wednesday, and transportation spokesman John Gleason said such a proposal was unlikely to go through.
