IDIOTS in Arkansas: Turkeys Droped from planes ($5000 reward)

On October 7 and 8, the city of Yellville
is holding its annual Turkey Trot Festival, during which wild turkeys—who
typically fly only short distances, rarely reaching 100 feet—are hurled from
private planes traveling around 70 miles per hour at altitudes of approximately
1,000 feet as part of the "Turkey Drop" tradition. Disoriented and
unable to right themselves, most birds plummet like bricks,
fatally crashing onto buildings, cars, and the street. Those with wind under
their wings careen at extreme speeds into the landscape. City
officials declare that this isn't sanctioned by the festival, yet it continues
year after year. Video
footage of the 2010 Turkey Drop can be viewed below.
