Stop Barbaric Fundraiser Where Teens Allegedly Drowned Baby Possums

Target: Emiel Logan, Chairman, Board of Trustees, Drury School

Goal: Punish students accused of drowning possums and put an end to vile and inhumane fundraiser.

Animal welfare officials are currently investigating allegations that teens were allowed to drown possum joeys as part of a barbaric fundraising event. Witnesses allege that baby possums were taken from their mother’s pouch and drowned in a bucket of water during a fundraising hunt for Drury School. The witness said that at least one teen, though it’s not currently known whether they attended the school, participated in this culling.

The fundraiser saw hunters capture and kill adult possums for their fur, which would then be sold to a buyer so that the school could profit. The hunters were required to remove and humanely dispose of any joeys before the possums were brought in, but some hunters did not, which led to these apparent drownings. According to board of trustees chairman Emiel Logan, “They were then put down of in a manner that was believed to be lawful.”

Lawful or not, killing animals for profit is not an appropriate lesson to impart on school-aged children. On top of that, allowing people to cruelly drown unwanted joeys in front of onlookers of all ages is barbaric and shocking. This fundraiser must not go on again. Sign the petition below to demand a school investigation, a punishment for any students involved, and that this fundraiser is never repeated in the future.

PETITION LETTER:

Dear Mr. Logan,

A teenager was reportedly seen drowning baby possums in a bucket of water at a recent fundraiser for Drury School. The joeys were reportedly taken from their mothers’ pouches after being captured during a cruel hunting event. The hunters were required to remove and humanely dispose of any joeys before the possums were brought to the weigh-in, but some hunters did not, which led to these apparent drownings. The witness said that at least one teen, though it’s not currently known whether they attended the school, participated in this culling.

The barbaric slaughter of animals for profit is not an acceptable thing to be modeling for school-aged children. We, the undersigned, demand an investigation into this alleged brutality and proper punishment for any student found to be involved. Furthermore, we demand that this fundraiser is never repeated.

Sincerely,

[Your Name Here]

      Well said Carole, the petition letter leaves out much of what should have been said. The children behaved abominably but took their lead from the school and its complete lack of concern for living things or the moral compass of its students. Weasel words also used in petition – the possums were not ‘culled’ they were KILLED, for heavens sake why cannot words be used that actually say it as it is (maybe only semantics but it is important in getting the message across – distancing the reader from the actuality rather like pork as opposed to pig, beef not cow, venison not bambi)

  2. Wow! That is as sick as you can get! Teaching children to tourture baby animals! Isnt that what serial killers do? Torture animals befor they start on people? Where are these people from? The movie Deliverence?
