Tell Yellville Arkansas to Stop Dropping Live Turkeys from Airplanes

Boycott Yellville Turkey Drop Festival because Mountain View Pharmacist Dana Woods in a cruel act – drops live turkeys from his airplane. Scheduled for October 13th and 14th, 2017

Pharmacist  Dana Woods thinks its fun to make a live animal suffer from fear and anxiety by throwing out live turkeys from his airplane. Being thrown from a moving aircraft will kill most turkeys.  Dana Woods must not have anything better to do in his life than torment innocent turkeys.

SICK FUN – As an example to our youth that this is okay; which  is definitely not okay.

The fun is to make the turkeys suffer by tossing them out of a plane.

The fun is to watch them free-falling in midair until they hit the ground and or get tangled up in wires and tree branches.

The fun is to chase the already frightened birds who didn’t die and subsequently kill them.

The promotor’s like to joke that these turkeys “can fly”; however wild turkeys would not normally fly that high above ground.  More over, for a bird, the decision to take off from the ground or a branch or other platform is totally different from being pitched involuntarily from a MOVING machine high in the air in the midst of terrific wind pressure produced by the plane, to plunge to wherever the traumatized bird happens to land.
