SHARK’s campaign to pass legislation in Pennsylvania to ban live pigeon shoots is in full swing, with TV commercials now on the air in PA House Majority Leader Mike Turzai’s district.
Turzai had promised he would allow HB 1750, which would ban pigeon shoots and the eating of cats and dogs, to be voted on, but he reneged and killed the bill. Last week it was discovered that the Flyers Victory Fund, the pro-pigeon shoot PAC, had donated $20,000 into the campaign accounts of key legislators three days before the vote was supposed to have happened, with the largest donation, $3,000, going to Turzai.
We’ve received word that out of the 18 legislators who got the pigeon shoot money, at least two, Katharine M. Watson and William F. Adolph Jr, are on our side and returned the money. Please thank them for doing that:
In January, when the new legislature is seated, we will continue to fight hard to ban pigeon shoots and continue to pour massive pressure on the PA legislature to take action.
In these past few months, SHARK has spent a lot of money fighting for the pigeon shoot ban. We have invested even more in new TV advertisements because the pressure against this monstrous cruelty must never end.
The funds generously donated by TV legend Bob Barker are gone. We need your help. Our resources are running low and if we are to continue to stand up and fight for animals, we need your generous support.
Those who mercilessly slaughter innocent pigeons for fun are extremely wealthy. Beside their own personal multimillions, they also have the vast wealth and lobbying resources of the National Rifle Association on their side.
SHARK is the engine of change in Pennsylvania and your donations are our fuel. We cannot run without you. Please don’t let the progress against this monstrous cruelty stop.
