Brasstown, North Carolina has a New Year's Eve tradition of dropping a opossum at midnight, instead of a ball as thousands of residents watch.

Noted, tweeted, signed, tweeted, and shared. Why does most celebrations that people share generally involve violence or death to animals?

I have to say this.....people in the southern states are un-necessarily cruel people. Imagine using a live Opossum like that.....having dogs chase raccoons down and tearing them apart....and even in Geogia FOX HUNTING is not outlawed. No wonder the KKK found a home there.
