ORANGEBURG, SC (WIS) - An animal rights group says it tried to launch a remote-controlled aircraft to take videos of a pigeon shoot in South Carolina, but the aircraft apparently was shot down.

Steve Hindi with Showing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) says his group wanted to videotape a pigeon shoot at the Broxton Bridge Plantation near Ehrhardt.

On Sunday, when SHARK began to prepare to launch the aircraft, both the police and a lawyer who said he represented the plantation showed up and tried to stop the group from flying its aircraft, Hindi said.

What they were doing was deemed to be legal, according to Hindi, and they continued on with their planned videotaping.
