World Animal Awareness Society Sends a Team to Learn the "Truth Through Video" at SNAPPERFEST 2011
Several volunteer film-makers led by WA2S.org Executive Director Tom McPhee are on an urgent impromptu mission to document the human – animal intersection that occurs at SNAPPERFEST in Aurora, Indiana.
SNAPPERFEST is an event claimed to be held at the Campshore Campground off of State Route 56 in Aurora, Indiana. PETA2 states that “every year at the Campshore Campground, wild-caught snapping turtles endure terrible violence at the hands of participants.”
A team of experienced film-makers will travel to Indiana as part of the World Animal Awareness Society to uncover the "truth through video" at this event. We will not only document what occurs at this event, but also interview attendees & possible protesters. Look for video to be shared through the WA2S.org YouTube channel here: http://www.youtube.com/
