FAA looking after pilot drops turkeys on Arkansas festival

FILE – In this Oct. 7, 2011, file photo, visitors to the Yellville Turkey Trot in Yellville, Ark., wear shirts mocking an effort by animal rights activists to identify a pilot who routinely flew over the festival and dropped live turkeys to the crowd. The dispute continues six years later, with festival sponsors inundated by emails asking them to stop the turkey drop. Festival organizers say they no longer sanction the turkey drop and that they have no control over what happens in the skies above. (Josh Dooley /The Baxter Bulletin via AP, file)
