INFORMATION / TALKING POINTS

Last year, SHARK exposed a horrifically cruel live pigeon shoot that was to be held as a fundraiser for the Prior Lakes, Minnesota chapter of Ducks Unlimited. We made THIS video calling out Ducks Unlimited. To its credit, Ducks Unlimited quickly shut the shoot down and replaced it with a clay target shoot.

Ducks Unlimited Senior Communications Specialist Matt Coffey explained the shutdown this way:

“We have policies in place holding our staff and local volunteers to high ethical and moral standards, and do not condone wanton waste of wildlife or other animals. To avoid the potential for wanton waste, the event committee has decided to change the live pigeon event to a sporting clays shoot.”

Sadly, the Prior Lakes chapter of Ducks Unlimited is planning another pigeon shoot for March 19th. SHARK is again asking Ducks Unlimited’s national leaders to shut this down before 2,000 innocent birds are shot, wounded, crippled and viciously killed.

Here is the flyer for the shoot. Note how event organizers are calling it a “driven hunt.” They claim they are “harvesting” the pigeons and that they will be given to people to eat. US Senator James Inhofe tried to spin his cruel pigeon shoot the same way last year, but we exposed that as a lie in THIS video.

Let’s hope that the national leaders of Ducks Unlimited have more integrity than those in the Prior Lakes chapter.


Thank you for everything you do for animals!
