PETA’s Full of Sheeta: Flying Camera From Animal Rights Group Shot Down at Pigeon Shoot

Police are investigating an incident at a Berks County hunting club in which someone on the hunting grounds allegedly targeted a mechanical flying object rather than a living and breathing one.

SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) are in the midst of a campaign against the Wing Pointe commercial hunting grounds in Hamburg, Berks County and its live pigeon shoots in which the birds are shot down. SHARK began to use an “Octocopter,” a remote controlled flying machine with a high tech video camera, to secretly record the pigeon shoots as they happen. 

“The pigeon shooters are basically going into hiding,” said Steve Hindi, president of SHARK. “So they’re using a ring that’s up a hill and completely surrounded by trees. So the only way you can get to it is through the air.”
