‘Sociopaths’ leave dozens of pigeons dead and wounded after blood-thirsty fundraising shoot

CHRISTOPHER HARRESS: ‘Video footage showing dozens of pigeons lying dead on the ground and others limping was released… by an animal rights group that secretly filmed members of the Alabama Forestry Association taking part in a live pigeon shoot. The video, which was shot legally from a drone, shows a man taking pigeons from a cage and throwing them into the air as participants circled the field waiting to shoot. Footage taken from the ground after the event was over shows close ups of pigeons limping, crawling, as well as many dead…

“We rescued as many as we could before nightfall,” said Steve Hindi, president and founder of Showing Animals Respect & Kindness (SHARK), an animal rights group based in Illinois. “It was heartbreaking to leave knowing so many more were out there suffering. These birds are not eaten. The wounded are left to die slow, painful deaths from their wounds, predation or starvation.” “The people from the Alabama Forestry Association aren’t hunters – they’re sociopaths,” added Hindi…

    An unconscious tiger cub was found in a duffle bag of illegal aliens crossing the border. Imagine how many animals are being smuggled across the border by illegal aliens daily, and don’t get caught or noticed. Defenseless animals who can’t cry out for help. Being dragged across Latin America with the purpose of crossing US border. Why? Because stupid Americans support politicians who encourage illegal immigration by failing to enforce our laws and demand they come here LEGALLY. This is hurting animals, but you hear NOTHING about this in the media. Disgraceful. Everyday, tons of animals smuggled across border. Parrots. Lizards, Puppies. Kittens. Small monkeys. Jungle cats. Sea Turtles Other exotic animals. We need walls. More border patrol agents to catch these illegal aliens if not for the purpose of saving these animals.
