    I still can't believe this is legal. Mind boggling.

    I cannot believe that they aren't being charged with animal cruelty. It is just horrible.

    How are Animal Planet and the local news not speaking about this?

    It still happened, despite protests.

    Snapperfest - turtle torture festival continues despite protests


    Pet Rescue Examiner
    August 20, 2011 -Aurora, Indiana - "it's just a little fun the guys have - of who can grab it the fastest and get it our the quickest," is Greg Park's explanation of Snapperfest 2011 where wild snapping turtles are overtly tortured by flabby"macho men" in shirtless overalls. Unfortunately onlookers and filming crews who might look suspiciously like members of the press or other assorted media sources may have been barred from filming the "entertainment."
    World Animal Awareness Society, a nonprofit based in Michigan traveled to Campshore Campgrounds early today off State Route 56 to capture on film "Truth Through Video" and to interview those attending both in support and those who are and have been protesting the event.
    Executive director and founder of the organization Tom McPhee was told to "leave the property and not to come back today." Apparently there was a warning that "outsiders" would just cause trouble.
    McPhee was heading by boat later this afternoon towards the Ohio River hoping to obtain some footage.

    Despite the Internet firestorm of protests against the egregious animal cruelty to wildlife, the festival continued.
    It's a very sad statement to humanity, our civilized society, and especially to our children to allow the abject cruelty of grabbing a wild turtle out of a wash tub, yanking it by its head out of its shell, slamming it to the ground, swinging it around by its neck, and calling that "just a little fun the guys have."
    Please comment if you are as disgusted by this atrocious display of "entertainment."
