The following is a post written on facebook by Anthony Damiano:
"For those who do not know, "Snapperfest" is a brutal festival held every summer in Ohio County, Indiana, where backwater, hillbilly proto-humans gather to cheer on fellow neanderthals, who torture turtles for their depraved amusement. The turtles are snatched from their natural wetland habitat, forced to endure being wrestled, as well as strangled(some to death, even ripped out of their shells to the sound of exuberant applause from the crowd) by these ugly, sweaty and smelly lunatics. This festival of barbaric brutality will be happening very soon. Please be a voice for the turtles, who have no voice of their own. If you have any media contacts who would place this horrific display in the public eye, please alert them if you would. "
