Plans for throwing turkeys now changed to stuffed ones.
Hotelier plans to throw turkeys off tower to see if they fly ...
This was the brainchild of a hotelier Joe Mahon who now wanted to throw turkeys from a 100ft roof for fun to see if they can fly. It’s a stunt for publicity by this sick bumkin in Fermanagh.
However as he now says he never said 'live' in his news release he insists he is using toy turkeys.
Response received from Joe Mahon-
This is the response several folk have had from Joe Mahon -
Just to let you know that there was never any intention of throwing live turkeys off the tower it doesn’t state anywhere in the original articles that the turkeys are Live,
The turkeys that we where using for the stunt are in fact toy turkeys (not Live)
The whole event is a charity event in aid of Cancer Research U.K. , we have a craft fair with local crafts and then an auction of Live turkeys on the street where they are perfectly safe and well looked after.
We ran a similar event last year (A Turkey Parade) as well and everything went well raising over a thousand pounds for Cancer Research, and all the children that attended the event enjoyed seeing live Turkeys.
I hope this answers your query

Joe gets a roasting over plans to toss turkeys off tower - News ...

We do believe he was planning to use real Turkeys, if not why did he not say so in the first place..Many newspapers covered the event. They were to be caught in a blanket 100 ft below to stop them hitting the ground.that was the answer he initially gave to cruelty claims from the public.
At least that is off now. He got lots of activists calling him and had legal advice not to go on radio with me this morning. I was on Shannonside and moved on the debate to Veganism and asked everyone to look to their own relationships with non human animals not just Turkeys.
It went well ...... it plants the seeds…and Joe Mahon wont hopefully use animals again.
