Slob Hunters Pennsylvania’s Disgrace

It’s time to end these pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania. From the Pocono Record

Live pigeon shoots should be outlawed. So should tethered turkey shoots. Yet in Pennsylvania, these inhumane activities continue.

State representatives John Siptroth, D-189, and Mike Carroll, D-118, are backing a bill that would ban such practices. State Sen. Pat Browne, R-16, is sponsoring a companion bill, S.B. 843. Both H.B. 1411 and S.B. 843 would ban the use of live animals or fowl for targets at a trap shoot or block shoot. Neither bill would affect traditional hunting; both apply only to shoots in which captive birds are launched from boxes in front of the shooter (pigeon shoots) or are tethered in place so they cannot escape (turkey shoots). The bills would make organizing, operating or conducting such a shoot a summary offense.

See the animal cruelty for yourself…

DO SOMETHING. Call or write to your PA State Legislator and tell him or her to support H.B. 1411. Let’s put a stop to this shameful cruelty. Pigeon shoots are a form of gambling just like dog fights and cock fights and should outlawed. Pennsylvania is the only State that doesn’t outlaw pigeon shoots and turkey shoots. Shame on Pennsylvania.
