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.
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.
SHARK Rescues Pigeons from Pigeon Shoot Massacre!
In the aftermath of the September 30th pigeon Shoot, SHARK was able to rescue nine wounded pigeons who made it off the Wing Pointe property. One died literally seconds after we picked her up, and the other eight were rushed to get medical care.
Due to being starved and then shot, four more passed away in the following week. However, we are proud to announce that four are still alive and doing well.
If not for us being there, on the ground, these birds would have died a slow and painful death.
Here are four of the survivors of the shoot.

Berks County District Attorney John Adams - the man responsible for this cruelty because he has used his power and authority to protect pigeon shooters from being charged with violations of PA state cruelty statutes. He has taken money from pigeon shooters and offered them protection from the law.
