Re: “Turkeys drop, one dies in Yellville. Another proud day for Arkansas

File a complaint against the Pharmacist/"pilot" Dana Woods of Mountain View Pharmacy for unethical behavior and cruelty to animals with the Arkansas Licensing Board for Pharmacists. Here is the info you want to put in your Pharmacy complaint against turkey-dropper-pilot Dana Woods at the Yelville turkey torture event -- Substance: cruelty to animals, moral unfitness to serve as a pharmacist, endangered public safety through reckless flying and throwing "Objects/helpless/disabled birds" out of a flying plane violating federal laws. Public safety is a crucial issue for pharmacists- board may have to do something about it...unprofessional conduct could be deducted too...Here is the address and website:


Arkansas Pharmacy Board, 322 Main Street, Suite 600, Little Rock, AR 72201, Tel: (501) 682-0190. www.pharmacyboard.arkansas.gov

Re: “Turkeys drop, one dies in Yellville. Another proud day for Arkansas

Everyone should also also file a complaint against the Pharmacist/"pilot" Dana Woods of Mountain View Pharmacy for unethical behavior and cruelty to animals with the Arkansas Licensing Board for Pharmacists.

Here is what is so unspeakably cruel: turkeys spend most of their lives walking and when they fly, they fly low and slow and mostly very short distances. The max. speed for a turkey lies probably around 30 mph. When they are thrown out of a single-engine Cessna aircraft, the maneuvering speed of the plane is, at least, around 90 miles per hour. So, that is the speed from which the turkey will then experience a linear acceleration component ( G= 9.81 m/sec or 10yards per sec....) Assuming that a turkey survives the throw-out, the poor bird then would have to try to manage both, deceleration and descend from a speed that could easily exceed 150 miles per hour. This is the reason why most birds that survive this cruelty suffer from horrible fractures, e.g. broken wings. The birds that die before they hit the ground act like an uncontrolled ballistic object that would easily destroy someone's automobile, penetrate the roof of a house, or, kill people on the ground. There is no excuse for this horrible turkey-throwing event.

Please file a complaint via e-mail against the pilot, Dana Woods of Mountain Woods Pharmacy. If you did not actually witness this event, just comment that you have obtained information through an internet channel and news reports that described the event in Yellville/Arkansas where live turkeys are thrown out of a low-flying aircraft above a crowd.

Here is the I-net address: FAAHotline@faa.gov, FAX 202-267-9555. The FAA headquarters can also be used and found on the I-net. They are in Tulsa/Oklahoma. The violations are FAA ch.91.13, ch 91.15 and 91,119 ( reckless flying, endangering public safety, throwing objects out of a flying aircraft ). Note that FAA does not pursue animal cruelty statutes. You will be complaining against the pilot for airspace violations, but that will show recklessness and danger and help get this insanity stopped.

Re: “Turkeys drop, one dies in Yellville. Another proud day for Arkansas

I have been told by a friend who works for the company, which shall be nameless, that a healthcare software company seeking to expand had this area of Arkansas on a list of possible locations and upon being told of this event, removed the Arkansas location from consideration. 900 jobs lost because of this stupid stunt that demonstrated barbaric, backward behavior. No company wants to reward that.
People form opinions of your community by your behavior. If you don't want to be viewed as inbred, slack-jawed yokels who entertain themselves with animal cruelty, then don't ACT like them. Take the responsibility for your actions and clean up your mess and get rid of this atrocious activity.
