All Our Lovely Creatures

The world's got a nosebleed and we're flooding
but we keep on cutting the trees in the forest
and we keep on paying those freaks on the tv
who claim they will save us but want to enslave us and
sweating like demons, they scream through our speakers
but we leave the sound on cause silence is harder and
no one's the killer and no one's the martyr
The world that has made us can no longer contain us
and prophets are silent then rotting away...

for a healthy planet and protecting our lovely creatures, big and small. Educating and empowering citizens to sustain their community through environmental stewardship. Be Eco-fabulous! -Raven

Snapperfest: Stop the Torture of the Snapping Turtle
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.
The next Snapperfest is scheduled for August 20, 2012. Write to Indiana Governor Mitchell E. Daniels asking him to ban Snapperfest before August 20 — for good!
