In these trying and difficult times, we want you to know that SHARK is still working hard fighting for animals and doing what we do best.
For instance, the Philadelphia Gun Club, a home for depraved pigeon shooters, has been holding live pigeon shoots every two weeks. We suspected that, even with PA Governor Wolfe ordering the shutdown of nonessential businesses, that the gun club would still hold a pigeon shoot this Friday. To put an end to that, we sent an email to the Bensalem Police Department, Town Council and Mayor alerting them to the shoots and the danger they posed to the public.
From our letter:
"In light of the COVID-19 crisis and the fact that Governor Wolfe has ordered the shutdown of nonessential businesses, I wanted to make sure you were aware that the Philadelphia Gun Club has been holding live pigeon shoots, and that members of the gun club travel to Bensalem from a number of different states, which have had outbreaks of their own."
"At the last shoot they held, which was on March 6, we saw vehicles from across Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Virginia, Connecticut, Tennessee and Michigan. When you factor in that some of the gun club’s members deal with international business, and that you have this wide range of states flowing into your town, this absolutely does represent a real threat to public safety. Also, at any given shoot there may also be other states represented at the gun club. For example, they have had attendees from Delaware, Maryland, New York, Vermont, Massachusetts and more. Therefore these shoots are a real confluence for possible exposure and spreading of this deadly virus.”
We were out yesterday morning to check to see if they were going to hold a shoot, as they normally would have, and we are pleased to announce that they did not! That means hundred of innocent lives have been spared from the gun club member's lust for blood and slaughter!
