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.
In some instances, the birds are tethered so there is no chance of escape.
Please contact the Pennsylvania Legislature and tell them to ban pigeons shoots once and for all. Click here to find and contact your Pennsylvania state legislator
Please contact Governor Tom Wolf and tell him that it's long past time for them to end the abominable cruelty of live pigeon shoots.
Please contact the Pennsylvania Tourism Bureau and tell them that you won't be vacationing in PA because of illegal live pigeon shoots.

The World Peace Diet, which became a #1 Amazon best-seller in March, 2010, has been published in 16 languages and offers a compelling and liberating new understanding of our food and our culture. It has been called one of the most important books of the 21st century: the foundation of a new society based on the truth of the interconnectedness of all life. It is the first book to make explicit the invisible connections between our culture, our food, and the source of our broad range of problems—and the way to a positive transformation in our individual and collective lives.
