But you can't fault Sarah. She seemed like she had no idea that it was going on. She was too focused on the camera.
According to the crew that was there filming and interviewing, they asked her if she wouldn't like to move so as not to have the turkey killing in the background. She said no. I have a vague memory of that question actually being on tape, but I could be wrong there.

So, yeah, she knew.

Somebody educate me here. What is the purpose of the cone-shaped thing the guy in the background was sticking the turkey in? Using it to cut the head off or drain the blood or both?

We used to "dress" (meaning slaughter and clean) turkeys and chickens on the farm when I was a girl. I've never seen cones used like that before, but they make sense for mass processing. Have you ever heard the term "running around like a chicken with it's head cut off?" When you chop off their heads, their wings flap and they run. I couldn't tell from the video if he'd already slaughtered the bird before he stuck it in the cone, but it keeps the turkey from running around and keeps the draining blood in the tub vs. all over the yard. My dad used to wrap them tightly in a towel, chop off their heads, and hold them over a bucket. It's fairly gruesome, but it's reality.
