Woohoo! This year will be the first time in 15 years that August passes without the torture of turtles in a barbaric event called “Snapperfest” at Campshore Campground in Aurora, Indiana.
peta2 Street Teamers were appalled last year when they saw the video that peta2 posted showing participants who slammed turtles into the ground, shoved their hands inside the turtles’ shells, and yanked the animals’ heads out so that the “competitors” could wrap their hands around the turtles’ necks. It’s easy to see how the turtles could be seriously injured or even killed:
Hundreds of thousands of you begged officials to intervene, and PETA pushed for cruelty-to-animals charges against participants. After a year of campaigning, our efforts have paid off! The state’s Department of Natural Resources announced that it will ensure that “Snapperfest” never happens again.
Thank you to everyone who raised their voice for turtles!
Father loves to farm, be self sustainable, loves to read, he's a antiques/vintage auctioneer, art student, and looks like mr. Rogers. My mother is a Montessori teacher and is amazing with children, all about local organic foods, loves gardening, cooking etc. my sister who is nine years older than me was into indie music and introduced me to all sorts of things at a young age. This all rubbed of on me and from that base I grew into similar things. I'm an INFJ
Well let's just say life ain't always beautiful but it's a beautiful ride. I love all my pets and would do anything for them. I have one dog, two cats, a ferret and my babygirl shaymin,(the cutest hedgehog alive) I'm into all different kinds of music. I'm a singer myself and love art.
I want to get into marketing but not have to rely on people which have different morals and worldviews than I do to hire me. While I'm figuring this out, I want to show everyone what I believe in and spur them into action against injustices.
I am Angela. When I am not helping animals I am listening to music, reading, or playing video games. My spirit animal is a fox and I love nature. What else is there to know? Want to know anything about me, need advice or anything message me :)
