Stop red-necks from killing innocent turtles! (Thread)

Also known as assholes killing snapping turtles. For no reason whatsoever.

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.

Please, please stop this cruel act from stupid red-necks!
