This is for US-residents: Please contact the Pennsylvania Legislature and tell them to pass SB510 which explicitly bans pigeons shoots once and for all. You can read the bill here. The current legislative session ends 11-30-2014. Click here to find and contact your Pennsylvania state legislator

To whom it concerns,

Pigeon shoots are vile competitions where thousands of birds are shot, killed or suffer terrible wounds and crippling pain.

These innocent animals are neither fed nor given water for days before the shooting starts, so that they will be easier targets. Suffering from dehydration and starvation, they are then launched out of small wooden boxes and into a storm of gunfire. Wracked with pain from searing buckshot lacerations, some will twist and fall from the sky with broken wings and backs. Other will escape, though death comes slowly for these poor birds for it may take days for them to succumb to their wounds.
(Bob Barker Speaks Out About Pennsylvania's Cruel Live Pigeon Shoots)

Many if not most of the slob shooters at Pennsylvania's infamous live pigeon shoots come from outside the state. They use Pennsylvania as their personal toilet, because they can't get away with such abuse at home.

They blast away at victims they will never so much as touch, leaving untold numbers to die in the surrounding fields over hours or days of their wounds, of predation, exposure or whatever in clear violation of Pennsylvania Humane Laws.

What do they care? When they're done, they'll simply go home. Or at least, that's how it has always been done before. Not anymore. Now comes SHARK's Operation Bright Light.

Why call it Operation Bright Light? Because when you turn over a rock you may find a slimy, smelly fungus, but when the sunlight shines on that fungus, it dries up and blows away. Pigeon shooters are no better than a slimy, smelling fungus.
I'm going to shine a very  bright, very hot light on pigeon shooters, especially those living outside Pennsylvania.

All of this suffering, all of this pain and torture, happens because a few people take pleasure in such blood sport. If we are to call ourselves a civilized society, then we must forever ban live pigeon shoots!

  1. Dear Suomigirl. You reposted this article from SHARK. The owner Steve Hindi is a convicted criminal. He also posts on the ALF web site or Animal Liberation front, a known terrorist organization. Nearly everything in this post is false. The video was taken by defiant trespass, and used video of minors without parental consent. I admire your love of cats and dogs and other animals but the info you posted here is false. By posting this you have violated Google's terms of service, and have aided and abetted a know terrorist organization. Please take this SHARK posting down immediately. I represent one of the people you have liabled and harmed. Please remove in 48 hours or we shall be forced to notify google and ask them to terminate your blogs and accounts for violations of their terms of service. We may also be forced to notify the US FBI who is following Mr. Hindi and his fellow criminals. We will also notify the Slovenian National Police. Mr. Hindi and SHARK are a phony 501(c)3 US tax exempt organization. His scam is to steal funds from unsuspecting animal loving people for his own personal gain. He makes over 600,000 dollars per year tax free from these scams. I strongly urge you to take this false posting down immediately or suffer the consequences.
