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.

Planning ahead is essential. You want to give your plants the environment they need to grow to ensure a healthy, productive harvest.

You may start preparing your ground in fall for next spring’s growing season, or you may even decide to grow some winter crops. With proper planning and preparation gardening for beginners, you will have a raised-bed garden that is the envy of your neighborhood.

This event is not entertainment but pure cruelty and madness!!!!!!!!!!!!!! No animal should be allowed to suffer in this manner or any other cruel, disgusting manner. Animals of every kind have feelings!!!!!!!This is undeniably cruel. I see no fun in it. This should be forever banned!!!!!!!!!! Remember,"Bless the beasts, and the children".
