Indiana "Snapperfest" Is Turtle Torture
Snapperfest is a brutal "celebration" held annually at the Campshore Campground in Ohio County, Indiana and it needs to be stopped. Innocent snapping turtles are captured, swung by their tails and bashed against the ground as amusement. BuzzFeed, will you help me save some turtles?
The Turtle Circus (1908)
The Turtle Circus appeared in a 1908 issue of St. Nicholas Magazine. Presumably the intent was to teach children something about turtles, but in reality, it's just about some crazy person who cruelly balances reptiles on cups. And no, I do not recommend that you try this at home.
