Emil Guillermo talks with PETA's senior litigation counsel, Martina Bernstein about the history of the  possum drop in Brasstown and Andrews, North Carolina, and how the Norrth Carolina state legislature was used by event organizers to justify animal cruelty.

PETA has offered alternatives to a live possum, including this year. No word back from the possum drop organizers.
