Why did one teen choose to post a video on facebook that she in all likelihood knew would upset the community?

Catrina Shears has come to cause controversy after posting a Facebook video of her brother hacksawing a turtle’s head off.

The 43 second video of the torturous incident filmed on a mobile phone, shows the West Michigan teenager using pliers to pull the turtle’s head out from its shell while her elder brother steps on the turtle.

As the turtles squirms he then pulls out a hacksaw and slowly saws through the animal’s neck for about 20 seconds.

Although the turtle moves it’s legs it stops moving after as the hacksaw goes deeper.

According to her Catrina’s comments the pair were in rush and could not find an axe.

Catrina seems unaffected, even admitting that they have done this for years, going on to describe how they let the animal’s blood drain for several hours.

Then she commented that she ‘should have taken a video of the blood squirting’ from the turtle’s neck.

The posting on the video elicited heavy criticism on Facebook with many saying if the siblings want to hunt and kill animals for meat the method of death should have been quicker.

Other people said that ‘decapitation is the humane way to kill a snapping turtle.’

Reacting to the posting, The Department of Natural Resources released a statement saying: ‘We are certainly disappointed anyone would post something like that to social media.

Although the actions depicted in this video are technically legal under state statute – provided that the capture of the turtle was legal – we would advocate a more rapid means of taking the animal’s life. We further hope this turtle was taken for the purpose of human consumption.’

Last night Catrina wrote on her Facebook page:  ‘Everyone who messages me saying rude things will also be reported for harassment and cyber bullying if they threaten me etc.’ 

Regulations vary widely from state to state and also within areas of a single state, while alligator snapping turtles are a whole different turtle and protected in many states.
