In early October, the city of Yellville holds its annual Turkey Trot Festival, during which wild turkeys are hurled from private planes traveling around 70 miles per hour at altitudes of approximately 1,000 feet as part of the "Turkey Drop" tradition

I guess my first comment went into a black hole again. Signed, thanks Cher. This reminds me of an episode on the old TV show "WKRP"...when as a promo stunt for the radio station they decided to drop turkeys from a plane before Thanksgiving. But idiots that they were, they dropped frozen turkeys. Still sick, but at least the poor turkeys were already dead.

As I commented, this is one of the sickest things I have ever read. The people who are capable of doing this are the same ones that are capable of abusing any other animal.
