Stop Endorsing Camp Snapperfest

      Spring Hill, United States

Camp Shore Campgrounds is a spawning grounds for future Jim Jones type mentalities. Their annual animal abuse event, Snapperfest, draws the likes of which can only be described as future domestic abusers and serial killers.

According to the Humane Society of the United States

" . . . Many studies in psychology, sociology, and criminology in the past 25 years have demonstrated that violent offenders frequently have childhood and adolescent histories of serious and repeated animal cruelty. The FBI has recognized the connection since the 1970s, when its analysis of the lives of serial killers suggested that most had killed or tortured animals as children.

Other research has shown consistent patterns of animal cruelty among perpetrators of other forms of violence, including child abuse, spousal abuse, and elder abuse. In fact, the American Psychiatric Association considers animal cruelty one of the diagnostic criteria of conduct disorder."

Something dark lurks in the town of Rising Sun, Indiana for them to not only tolerate but to actually endorse the dysfunctional establishment that hosts it's Torture-Fest for entire families.

      I received the following email from the owner of "Indiana Places," a site that advertises for Camp TurtleTorture. They claim they do not have Camp Shore Campgrounds on their site. See for yourself via the link enclosed and feel free to send them and email.

      I do not have Camp Shore Campgrounds on my web site. If you do not stop spamming my email with these needless emails I will consult legal council and take appropriate action.

These animals are amazing, highly important to our planet, highly intelligent, loving, social beings!!!!!!!!!! HOW DARE MAN KIND (two words that have no right to be together; "man" and "kind") call them selves the smartest creatures, LMFAO, yet it is DISTURBINGLY predictable and CLICHE that the dumbest and most pointless and destructive species on this earth WOULD think they were the smartest and most important LOL..... ohhh God, I feel like gesture in a Shakespeare playwright just observing the mass amounts of idiots around me and I know the more enlightened; real people, experience this same feeling......

      Are you proud of sponsoring and encouraging sociopathic cruelty to animals? Are you aware that there is a strong correlation between cruelty to animals and cruelty to human beings? Is this what your city is all about? I would find such a place too scary to visit or even drive through.

      I find it totally disgusting that there is no respect for these living creatures and they are handled as if they are inanimate objects!
