Ban Pigeon Shoots in Pennsylvania!

Posted by Stephen Wells, ALDF's Executive Director on April 20, 2011

In an exciting development last week, Senate Bill 626, which would ban cruel live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania, passed the state Senate Judiciary Committee. The bill will now move to the full Senate where your support is needed more than ever to assure its passage.

Pennsylvania is the last state to allow the cruel spectacle of live pigeon shoots, in which shooters aim to kill dazed pigeons who are launched randomly from boxes, attempting to kill the most birds within a ring for prizes and money. Each year these grisly competitions take place nearly every weekend in Pennsylvania.

Pennsylvania residents: please make a brief, polite call to your state senator and ask support for Senate Bill 626, to finally ban pigeon shoots.

Sample script: As your constituent, I urge you to support SB 626, which would ban cruel live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania. Please vote "YES" on SB 626.
