Animal abuse happens everywhere, but one county in Indiana takes animal cruelty to a whole new level with its yearly Snapperfest.
Snapperfest is an annual festival held in Ohio County, Indiana, in which families come to watch competitors abuse snapping turtles. Contestants grab the animals by the tails and slam them to the ground. The turtles are spun around in the air by their heads until the contestant can wrap the neck around his fist. Most of the turtles die from injuries or stress.
Children watching the festivities are consequently witness to extreme animal cruelty on the part of humans at young ages.
The fact is animal abuse often leads to more serious, harmful crimes. To teach these values to children is a grave oversight of logic.
