Reference Number: DCDL-0000433
We see a man up a tree clutching an axe and looking a bit startled. His intention is to kill turkeys for Christmas but when he realises that they are coughing and sneezing he scrambles up the tree to escape what he thinks is bird-flu. The turkeys are faking the flu as they want to survive the Christmas slaughter. Refers to current fears of bird flu.
