Stop Cruelly Killing Pigeons For Entertainment

Republican James Inhofe, the US senior senator from Oklahoma, held a live pigeon shoot on Friday, September 5, 2014, at the Quartz Mountain Lodge in Lone Wolf, Oklahoma.

Anyone willing to pay could take part in this canned hunt and blast away at hand thrown, tame pigeons - many of them banded - with the Senator. This wasn't hunting, this was a slaughter. Many wounded birds escaped the killing field to die slow, lingering deaths.

The real kicker was Inhofe Campaign Manager Rusty Appleton, who claimed the birds were being given to homeless people. This is a lie, since the homeless shelter can only serve meat that is USDA certified.
As SHARK is the nationwide leader in the animal protection movement fighting against live pigeons shoots, we decided to send in an undercover investigator to the event to both witness and film the pigeon shoot.

This is the resulting video.
