Please Stop the Cruel "Snapperfest" From Happening Again!

  • recipient: Ohio County Comissioners
Every year at the Campshore Campground in Ohio County, Indiana an extremely cruel event called "Snapperfest" takes place. Wild caught turtles are put through a sick game in which they are grabbed by their tails and repeatedly smashed into the ground. Then if that wasn't enough their heads are pulled out of their shells and swung around until the participants are able to wrap their fists around the turtles necks. This video shows what happens:
Please tell Ohio County Comissioners that this isn't right! The last Snapperfest has just passed so let us make sure it never happens again!
***IMPORTANT***Please keep all comments polite. Do not under any circumstance post hateful, aggressive or threatening speech as this will only hurt the cause and this in turn only hurts the animals. We want to be taken seriously.

As well as signing this petition please send polite comments to these people: 

The Honorable Connie J. Brown
Ohio County Commissioner

The Honorable Todd Walton

The Honorable Connie Smith

We the undersigned are writing to you today to ask you to cancel any future Snapperfests. The cruelty towards these turtles is shameful and disgusting. Not one of these animals deserves to be so violently treated in the name of "entertainment" or "tradition". Please cancel this horrific event and concentrate on more humane animal free events instead. Thank you for reading.
