Once again PETA has come to the rescue of the poor mistreated animals of the world.
Apparently every New Years Eve, while millions celebrate in Times Square by dropping a ball, and billions celebrate the event around the world in their own way, in the little town of Brasstown, North Carolina, the possum capital of the world, they have a 'Opossum Drop'.
No, they don't literally drop a possum on it's head. They put a possum in a little plastic cage, lower the cage twenty feet - and then set the possum free.
PETA sued on behalf of the possum....... and North Carolina Senior Administrative Law Judge Fred Morrison Jr., ordered: "Hunters must afford wild animals the same right Patrick Henry yearned
for, 'Give me liberty, or give me death!’”
Between tasting the bear stew, and the musket shoots, I wonder if some North Carolinians are thinking about having a 'Law Judge Drop' or a 'PETA Lawyer cook-off'?
By the way, it would be legal to shoot and kill the possum, but illegal to cage it, lower it and set it free...... Click here...
