HSUS to Stage Anti-Hunting Call-in-Day in Pennsylvania

Wednesday, September 14, 2011

When the Pennsylvania Senate reconvenes on Monday, September 19, the anti-hunting extremists of the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) will stage an “End Live Pigeon Shoots Call-in-Day” to members of the state Senate.  The HSUS “Call-in-Day” is in support of immediate action on Senate Bill 626, legislation sponsored by state Senator Patrick Browne (R-16) prohibiting organized bird shoots.  This proposal still remains active on the Senate Calendar for possible consideration.

Organized bird shooting is a traditional shooting sport widely practiced in more than thirty-five states across the nation, not only in Pennsylvania as opponents falsely claim.  For over a century, shoots have been held in Pennsylvania by law-abiding, ethical shooting enthusiasts.

Radical national animal “rights" groups, led by the HSUS, have organized and funded efforts in Pennsylvania and around the country to ban this longstanding, traditional shooting sport.  Make no mistake, this is not just about banning organized bird shoots; this is ultimately about banning all hunting, species by species and method by method.  Here are a few examples of HSUS activities:

     * Oppose Sunday hunting in Pennsylvania
     * Led a 2006 ballot campaign to ban dove hunting in Michigan (contributing $1.6 million to the effort)
     * Funded a ballot initiative in 2004 to ban traditional bear hunting in Maine
     * Successfully lobbied for the cancellation of the 2006 New Jersey black bear hunt
     * Opposed hunting on National Wildlife Refuges
     * Objects to urban archery hunts to control deer populations throughout the country
     * Spent hundreds of thousands of dollars opposing a constitutional right to hunt amendment in Arizona in 2010
     * Opposed state pheasant stocking programs in Pennsylvania and across the country

Next week, it’s crucial that your state Senator hears your voice over the emotional pleas of the anti-hunting zealots.  Please contact your state Senator and urge him or her to protect Pennsylvania’s sporting traditions by opposing SB 626.  For help identifying your state Senator and his or her contact information, please click here.
