Yellville, AR-- For decades the turkey drop at the annual Turkey Trot festival has drawn hundreds of people to Yellville, Arkansas.
But this year, The Federal Aviation Administration threatens to discipline any pilot who drops live turkeys.

"I think it's Un-American. Anyone that knows anything about wildlife knows that turkeys can fly and they don't get hurt. It's a festival and why should we stop what they have been doing for 66 years? It's awesome," said Theresa Rodgers.

F.A.A. leaders say they have seen video of a turkey falling straight down and bouncing off the roof of a building.

""It's a helicopter, and it's coming this way. It's flying something behind it, I can't quite make it out, it's a large banner and it says, uh - Happy... Thaaaaanksss... giving! ... From ... W ... K ... R... P!! No parachutes yet. Can't be skydivers... I can't tell just yet what they are, but - Oh my God, Johnny, they're turkeys!! Johnny, can you get this? Oh, they're plunging to the earth right in front of our eyes! One just went through the windshield of a parked car! Oh, the humanity! The turkeys are hitting the ground like sacks of wet cement! Not since the Hindenburg tragedy has there been anything like this!"

Can't wait until one of these turkeys falls on that douche in the first video and lands right on his stupid Red Sox visor.
