Petition to stop the possum drop in Brasstown, NC

PETITION: Stop the possum drop in Brasstown, N.C./>
Target: North Carolina General Assembly

The Annual Possum Drop at Clay's Corner in Brasstown, N.C. was stopped in 2013 and 2014 but was allowed to go on this past New Year's Eve. This event involves lowering a live possum while fireworks and loud noises go off to ring in the New Year. In 2013 and 14 a fake possum was lowered as opposed to a live one. The event is done to mimic the annual ball drop in Times Square. Last year the state's General Assembly passed a law to suspend enforcement of state wildlife rules as they apply to opossums for a few days before and after New Year's Eve. Please sign this petition and let the North Carolina General Assembly know how ridiculous this law is and that the possum drop should not be allowed to go on.

People have gone over the top to have what they call "fun" at the expense of animals. Leave animals, possums, out of it. You who do things like this aren't original and clever like you think you are. You are like nasty children; and we wonder where children get their cruel and bullying ways! Look to yourselves...... Use an inanimate object and leave the possums out of it!
