Animals Petition: Stop Snapperfest | Change.org
A cruel event is scheduled where snapping turtles will be SLAMMED TO THE GROUND, swung around repeatedly, and have their heads yanked from their shells.
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.
