Disappointingly, the town of Longville, Minnesota, apparently encourages residents to entice turtles each summer season and makes use of them in “races” every Wednesday from June via August!
Turtle-racing occasions sometimes contain eradicating wild turtles from their habitats, retaining them confined, altering their diets, in any other case traumatizing them, and both releasing them or killing them as soon as the occasions are full. Opponents on the races make loud noises to scare them in an effort to encourage them to maneuver quicker. Turtles solely transfer shortly once they consider their lives are at risk. Though we don’t know precisely what turns into of these utilized by Longville, turtles exploited in such occasions sometimes aren’t returned to the precise place they had been discovered, which decreases their chance of survival. Passing turtles round amongst people or housing them collectively, a standard observe once they’re used for these occasions, dangers an infection.
Please politely urge metropolis officers to scrap these merciless occasions and depart the turtles in peace in nature, the place they belong!
