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.

Brought down with one rifle shot.
That’s great shooting.
Why are the police investigating? It was a shooting range and the thing made a great target.
If these folks don’t want their drone shot down they need to fly it somewhere else.
LMAO............oh, this is just too rich. LOVE it. Bump. :)
THen again, this is the era of "judge-shopping"..
so whats the problem with that?
sounds like it was trespassing.
I knew this story sounded familiar. The same outfit was in SC last winter. Better shooting this time; they caused more damage to the drone, but still didn’t destroy it.
LMAO yet again.....how else to characterize that, but.......perfect. :)
I don’t see why the police are involved, except for illegal recording and trespassing
I support shooting drones down. Pigeons too
Wanna bet that every pigeon lover involved has a pro-choice bumper sticker on the back of it’s Prius?
As far as I know secretly recording people is illegal in Pennsylvania, how can we look this up??
