    FAA says it's ready for Arkansas turkey drop
    APAP 17 hrs ago

    YELLVILLE, Ark. (AP) No one in the northern Arkansas town of Yellville will say if they expect wild turkeys to fall from planes for this year's Turkey Trot festival. But the Federal Aviation Administration says it is watching.

    Organizers of the festival long ago disavowed the tradition of letting wild turkeys fall from low-flying airplanes as spectators watched them glide to the ground.

    The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals has called the event cruel and offered a $5,000 reward for any information that leads to an arrest. And the FAA has tried to crack down on pilots who participate....


    I rarely agree with PETA but I hope they catch the guys who do this.
