Live turkeys used in Pennsylvania archery competition

this pisses me off. I'm not a vegetarian, and i'm not some left-wing bleeding heart, but who the hell ties up animals and charges people money to shoot them with arrows. Now, turkeys aren't exactly like puppies, but doesn't picturing this event kind of make you sick? I agree with the inspector who said that it was a gutless act of cruelty and the people there were there to have fun by torturing animals.
Good hard news reporting, and it was good they went to try to get information from the clubowner and the sportsmen's clubs. those would be two different perspectives worth having in the stories, and the fact that they would not or could not comment does more for the emotional impact of the story.
