Attention Pennsylvania Hunters: Help Stop the Attack on Our Hunting Heritage!

Tuesday, July 1, 2008

Please Contact Your State Representative Today! 

As we have reported, amendments filed by State Representative Daylin Leach (D-149) to Senate Bill 151 and House Bill 1543 could be considered by the House at ANY MOMENT.  Simply stated, this legislation would criminalize and ban organized pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania by amending Title 18 ("Crimes and Offenses") of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes.

Pigeon shooting is an historic and legitimate activity steeped in tradition with many participants throughout the Commonwealth and around the world.  Participants are law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts, hunters, and sportsmen who would not tolerate an activity that would constitute cruelty to animals. 

Pigeon shoots have been part of Pennsylvania’s storied hunting heritage for over one hundred years.  Now, national “animal rights” extremist groups, led by the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), have organized and funded efforts in Pennsylvania and around the country to ban this longstanding traditional shooting sport.

These zealots have set their sights on banning all hunting species by species throughout the United States, not just in Pennsylvania.  Today, anti-hunting extremists are focusing on pigeon shooting, tomorrow it will be deer or turkey hunting.  The CEO of HSUS, Wayne Pacelle, has admitted, “If we could shut down all sport hunting in a moment, we would.”  Pacelle has even said, "We are going to use the ballot box and the democratic process to stop all hunting in the United States... We will take it species by species until all hunting is stopped..." 

Please contact your State Representative IMMEDIATELY and respectfully ask him or her to protect Pennsylvania’s rich hunting tradition by opposing Representative Leach’s amendments.  Contact information for your State Representative can be found here.
