TURTLE TORTURE SEASON IS NEARING

In a little town called Nisswa - population 1,817 - there is an event held annually by the Chamber of Commerce called the Nisswa Turtle Races. This year the races will begin on June 2nd and be held every Wednesday through summer.  Nisswa turtle racing, founded by residents in 1963, is a favorite small town event. According to Craguns.com it was boredom that lead to the idea that racing turtles would be fun and entertaining. Each year turtles are taken out of the wild by organizers and then brought to a parking lot in downtown Nisswa where participants can line up and select their turtle from the bunch. The turtles are set down on hot asphalt and repeatedly splashed with water to get them moving towards the finish line. The organizers claim the turtles are then returned to the wild when the race is over. What the organizers don't tell anyone is what turtle racing does to turtles. First, let's look at what is before the Minnesota legislature right now.  Currently before the House
