Witness to a pigeon shoot: Hundreds of birds shot, the wounded pummeled

When animal welfare groups release video depicting horrendous conditions and mistreatment of animals at a slaughterhouse or a puppy mill, often the operators charge that the video was doctored or fake. Such is the case at Pennsylvania pigeon shoots - the activity, now conducted only at private hunting clubs, that the NRA defends as a "proud hunting tradition" and animal activists call a brutal blood bath.
