What’s the first rule of pigeon shooting club?Â Â Don’t talk about pigeon shooting club:
Police said the citation stems from an alleged pigeon shoot on March 14. The National Women’s Humane Society said it alerted officials after receiving a tip that the club had quietly resumed pigeon shoots sometime last year.
Club attorney John VanLuvanee said the organization “has every right to do what they are doing” and he hopes the township will withdraw the citations.
I’m wondering where HSUS’s tip came from.Â Either way, I am not in favor of the law banning pigeon shooting, as I’ve talked about here and here, and we’ve also highlighted a ban’s effect on dog training.Â That said, it’s not the best public image for gun clubs in this area, and while I would be the last to join with the animal rights folks in calling for a ban, it’s not really the best kind of shooting event for an urban/suburban club to be hosting.
