Citizens Shoot Down Animal Rights Group’s Surveillance Drone

Citizens Shoot Down Animal Rights Group’s Surveillance Drone 


http://www.theblaze.com/storie...eillance-drone/


SHARK Animal Rights Group Says its Surveillance Drone Shot Down near Broxton Bridge Plantation Sunday.

A remote-controlled aircraft owned and operated by an animal rights group called SHARK, was reportedly shot down near Broxton Bridge Plantation, South Carolina, on Sunday.

TheTandD.com reports:

Steve Hindi, president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), said his group was preparing to launch its Mikrokopter drone to video what he called a live pigeon shoot on Sunday when law enforcement officers and an attorney claiming to represent the privately-owned plantation near Ehrhardt tried to stop the aircraft from flying.

“It didn’t work; what SHARK was doing was perfectly legal,” Hindi said in a news release. “Once they knew nothing was going to stop us, the shooting stopped and the cars lined up to leave.”

Hindi said the animal rights group decided to send the drone up anyway but that seconds after it hit the air “numerous shots rang out.”

“As an act of revenge for us shutting down the pigeon slaughter, they had shot down our copter.”

He claimed the shooters were “in tree cover” and “fled the scene on small motorized vehicles.”

I thought there were a law pretty much in every state now about not harrassing game and hunters? Wouldn't this fit that category?

I'm not a fan of SHARK, but I haven't known them to harass hunters.  They protest live pigeon shoots that are almost universally outlawed as it is.  Live pigeon shoots are stupid and immoral.  Animals should be hunted fairly and ethically.  Shoot clay pigeons.

I would say alot of laws were broken. Like maybe tresspassing? Possibly some privacy issues as well. Thing is, there is only one side of the story posted. Although im not a fan of canned hunts, i know how stupid animal rights groups act.

I shoot nuisance animals, like groundhogs too.  The difference is, I don't go to a pet store and buy 10 or 15 groundhogs( I realize no one sells ground hogs, but the concept applies), let them loose in my back yard and open up.  There's a difference between hunting or ridding your property of nuisance animals, and using live animals for target practice.  Shooting cage raised, wing clipped pigeons just doesn't do it for me.

I would agree until you look at the passenger pigeon. At one time, they darkened the sky with numbers. Now there are none!!

I know what you are saying Sal. But i wil never accept any action that the anti hunting groups impose. If you dont agree, go and sit at a MD bear check station during the 3 day bear season, they are at the gate filming every vehicle that comes through the gate.
