      15,000 Domestic Birds to be Shot for Target Practice
      Activists travel to Pennsylvania almost every week to attend the pigeon shoots
      and document the event. They point out that Pennsylvania's Animal Cruelty Law,
      Title 18, section 5511, prohibits a person from wantonly or cruelly
      ill-treating or abusing any animal. The law also prohibits neglect,
      abandonment, and deprivation of food, drink, shelter, or veterinary care.
      Pigeon shoots violate every one of these prohibitions. All of the information
      including videos can be downloaded below or at http://PigeonShoots.com

      Pigeon shoots are competitions wherein hundreds to thousands of live birds are
      shot at to win prizes. A typical 3-day shoot contest can kill and injure up to
      15,000 birds. The next canned pigeon shoot event is scheduled for October 3,

      The pigeons are captured and collected for weeks ahead of time, then released
      from trap boxes only yards away from the so-called "sportsmen". The birds are
      generally dazed and suffering from dehydration or starvation as they are sprung
      out of the boxes.

      Rather than mercifully being given a quick death, 70% of the birds are injured
      when shot and either left to suffer slow deaths or collected and killed by
      pigeon shoot "trapper boys" or "wringers", traditionally children, who break
      their necks, step on them, tear off wings, suffocate them, or cut off their
      heads with garden shears, among other abuses.

      Pigeon shoots are nothing more than a vile excuse for entertainment for the
      dull-witted or psychopathic. Illegal in other countries and in all but a couple
      of American states, most people realize the despicable nature of these
      bird-killing contests.

      Activists vow to take the war against Pennsylvania's remaining live pigeon
      shoots directly to the people, aided by a $1 million gift from former
      television personality Bob Barker.

      Legislation is pending in both the Pennsylvania House and Senate (H.B.
      1411/S.B. 843) to ban the killing of animals launched for trap shoots or tied
      in place for block shoots. Activists say: Vote YES on H.B. 1411/S.B. 843 to
      stop live animal shoots.
