URGENT! Stop Turtle Torture Event!

You have just got to be kidding me.

Ohio County, Indiana, is home to an extraordinarily cruel event called “Snapperfest”—next scheduled for this Saturday, August 20! Every year at the Campshore Campground, wild-caught snapping turtles endure terrible violence at the hands of participants. The frightened animals are grabbed by their tails and repeatedly slammed to the ground. Their heads are yanked from their shells, and they are then swung around until “contestants” are able to wrap their fists around the animals’ necks.

STOP THIS EVENT!

PETA, without success, appealed to the compassion of the Ohio County commissioners. Now it’s your turn. Please contact the commissioners and the campground, as well as Rising Sun Council Members, and politely ask that they do the right thing and replace this cruel event. And please spread this alert far and wide.

Please send polite comments to:
