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?
