SC Police Intimidation Outside Broxton Bridge
An animal protection group protesting a live pigeon shoot at Broxton Bridge Plantation is calling for an investigation into the “tactics of intimidation” it claims were used against its members by two Colleton County deputies.
But Colleton County Sheriff George A. Malone says his officers were merely doing their jobs on Feb. 12.
SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness, or SHARK, protested beside U.S. Highway 601 outside Broxton Bridge during the shoot, calling the plantation’s treatment of the pigeons used in the shoot “cruel.”
