Turkey terrorism continues in Yellville: UPDATE another turkey death on Saturday

Fox 16's Mitch McCoy reports
that live domesticated turkeys were again dropped from an airplane over the Yellville Turkey Trot festival Saturday.

No report on how the birds fared. One died in Friday's drop.

UPDATE: The Baxter Bulletin reports that one of four turkeys thrown from a plane on Saturday died.

The first two birds released glided to their landings, one landing in a tree before hopping down. The ill-fated third turkey never showed much wing activity and plummeted into the creek bed. The fourth turkey landed at the southern end of the field and was chased down by a group of children.

A juvenile apparently retrieved the dead bird from the banks, and could be seen carrying it across several sand bars as he made his way back across the creek after the flyover.

Veteran Turkey Trot attendees theorized that wind shear from leaving the plan might have broken the bird’s wings, while others argued that the bird had a heart attack from fright.

The Phantom Pilot — who's been identified by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette as Mountain View alderman and Woods Pharmacy pharmacist Dana Woods — sounds a little whiny on Facebook about the attention the inhumane practice has brought the event worldwide.

Talk about something else, he says. Which suggests there's been a LOT of talking about his favorite sport and it hasn't been pleasant. He's been busy deleting comments from the Facebook page.

A couple of final thoughts:

* A rash prediction: This was the last turkey terror toss. Dana Woods has had his Alamo. He's showed the libtard pinko vegans of the world they can't stop him from throwing dumb animals out of a plane, occasionally to a gruesome splat below. Cooler heads — and money — will prevail. Arvest and Harps and others won't again agree to sponsor an event where their sponsorship must be hidden because the festival is a worldwide symbol of cruelty to animals.  The sheriff, judge and mayor don't want to continue to endure hundreds of phone calls and e-mails about the practice they've endorsed. Law enforcement officials don't want to be forced to review the applicability of the animal cruelty law. Pharmacy Doctor Woods can claim victory and stay home in Mountain View next year. It will be easy to find an excuse. "Hillary Clinton is worse" is always a good place to start.

I hope I don't have to eat these words.

* Woods's resume notes his membership in the Church of Christ. A suggestion for his church's morning reading: Proverbs 12:10

A righteous man has regard for the life of his animal, But even the compassion of the wicked is cruel.
