Carlton Pools and Wing Pointe Cruelty

SHARK has documented unbelievable and horrifying cruelty at the Wing Pointe canned hunting resort in Pennsylvania. From shooters wounding, crippling and killing thousands of birds, to trapper boys beating, crushing and throwing still living birds into corpse barrels - and then dumping them into a mass dead pile where these poor birds die slowly over the course of days - Wing Pointe and its owner Joseph Solana Jr. have proven to be responsible for some of the worst cases of animal cruelty we have ever seen. You can learn more about Solana here.


Bob Barker Speaks Out About Pennsylvania's Cruel Live Pigeon Shoots

Game Show Icon Bob Barker speaks out about Pennsylvania's infamously cruel live pigeon shoots. Mr. Barker is the former host of The Price is Right and Truth or Consequences game shows.


Call It Cruelty!

The use of live pigeons for target/pleasure shooting is obviously despicable, but the horror does not end when the shooting stops. Left to suffer and die, the wounded but still living animals face unspeakable agony. Unable to fly, injured pigeons are exposed to the elements, including freezing rain, snow and ice. With open and infected injuries, the end is slow and arduous. Days may pass before the relief of death finally comes.


Massacre at Wing Pointe Canned Hunt Club on September 30, 2012 Documented by SHARK

SHARK Calls Out Bucks County SPCA on Pigeon Shoots at the Philadelphia Gun Club!

Dear Ms. Irwin,

As you are aware, SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) has for years documented indefensible animal abuse and cruelty in violation of Pennsylvania Humane Law 5511 at the Philadelphia Gun Club (PGC) in Bensalem Township.

On March 2, 2013, another live pigeon shoot was held at the PGC. SHARK was there from before the start until after it was over. Predictably, we recorded numerous instances of animal cruelty beyond the cruelty of the illegal shoot itself, and have put some of the evidence into a video that is on YouTube for you to view. Here is the video:


Ban this 'sport'

In Our View:

Intelligencer Journal
Apr 22, 2013

There is nothing "sporting" about shooting birds from close distance as they attempt to flutter out of a cage.

Yet, this is what passes for sport. Pigeon shoots, you see, are still legal in just one state — Pennsylvania.

At pigeon shoots, birds are launched into the air and are shot by participants with shotguns from a distance of 25 to 30 yards. Most of the birds are wounded and flutter to the ground where trapper boys run out and wring their necks or they are shot again.


SHARK Rescues Four Wounded Pigeons from the Philadelphia Gun Club

Last Saturday, March 30, 2012, the sick, twisted membership of the Philadelphia Gun Club (PGC) held another live pigeon shoot. Pigeon shoots are horrendous events where exhausted and frightened birds are put into small wooden boxes then hit with an electric shock as they are launched into the air and shot.

NRA Cruelty

Live pigeon shoots, where birds are stuffed into small boxes, then launched into a hail of gunfire, are the ultimate form of animal abuse, for they are the mass killing and wounding of living beings simply for the pleasure it brings.


Commentary: Fuel for the Fire

“The images are stark: men and teenagers drop-kicking wounded pigeons like footballs, stomping on them, slamming them against their heels until they explode.”
