Protest Targets Pigeon Shoot

PERRY TOWNSHIP, Pa. - A local university group and an animal rights group are protested a pigeon shoot in Berks County this weekend.

The Kutztown University Vegetarian Education Group and Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, or SHARK, were outside the Wing Pointe hunting resort Sunday.

The groups were protesting a day-long live pigeon shoot held at the resort.

"We hope to just spread awareness not only for our group as far as our campus, but for this cause. It's something that, you know, celebrities from all over the U.S. are against and it's particular to our state," said Letecia Garcia, a member of the Vegetarian Education Group at K.U.

Pigeon shoot organizers said it's form of pest control.

Pennsylvania is one of the last states to allow pigeon shoots.
