PETITION: Help stop the Yellville, AR Turkey Drop >
Target: Arkansas Governor: Asa Hutchinson and Arkansas Attorney General: Leslie Rutledge
Every year in Yellville, Arkansas, the community gathers to celebrate the annual Turkey Trot. The event features the turkey drop where live turkeys are tossed from planes to waiting townspeople. Yes, you read that right. A plane flies up to 500 feet (per FAA guidelines), and drops live Turkeys to awaiting onlookers. According to a story in the Arkansas Gazette. Five turkeys survived this years drop and one died on impact. Those that do survive to land must then contend with a large, bloodthirsty crowd who will fight to capture the frightened animal before slaughtering it.
