Animal Org Warns City One More Time Before National Campaign

See also

On July 12, 2013, Smithville, Tennessee held a scholarship fundraiser for their high school in which participants stabbed, shot, beat, and killed frogs. Whoever gathered the most dead frogs won.

The Global Conservation Group campaigned against the event, however it went forward despite all the public backlash. The city plans to host the cruel event again this year, so the Global Conservation Group is warning the city one more time before it launches a $10,000 national campaign against the town.

Below is an open letter from the president of the organization to the city's mayor:

January 3, 2014

City of Smithville
Mayor Jimmy Poss
104 E. Main Street #103
Smithville, Tennessee 37166

Dear Mr. Mayor,
As you may be aware, the Global Conservation Group launched a vigorous campaign against “Giggin' for Grads” back in July 2013.
In order to prevent another such event, our organization is prepared to launch a major campaign this spring if we are not reassured that no future “Giggin' for Grads” events will occur again in the future. As part of the campaign, we will develop television and online ads, as well as direct mail and bill board advertisements informing visitors, residents, and nearby cities of Smithville's animal abuse. A website “stopfrogabuse.com” will also be published.
However, we hope to work together to find a solution before the public has to be involved. You can reach me at jordan.turner@globalconservationgroup.org

Kind Regards,

Jordan W. Turner
President
Global Conservation Group
