Pennsylvania: Say No to Cruel Pigeon Shoots

Pennsylvania: Say NO to Cruel Pigeon Shoots

Pennsylvania is still home to live pigeon shoots -- disgraceful contests where live birds are shot for prizes and money. This sport is animal cruelty, plain and simple. This indefensible practice has gone on for far too long.

Please call your state senator’s office today, and urge support for SB 510 to ban live pigeon shoots. Look up your senator's phone number here. You can say: "I am a constituent, and I am calling to ask you to please support SB 510 to ban trap and block shoots."

After making your phone call (please do not skip that crucial step!), fill in and submit the form below to automatically send a follow-up message to your state senator. Legislators receive a lot of email, so be sure to edit your message so it stands out.

Dear Senator,

Please support SB 510 to ban live pigeon shoots and end these cruel competitions. In an average shoot, 70% of the birds shot are wounded -- not killed outright -- and linger for days in neighborhoods slowly dying of their wounds. Live pigeon shoots are not pest control. Shooters import birds into Pennsylvania by the thousands to support the shoots -- and these birds stay in the state, compounding -- not relieving pigeon population problems.
