We are very pleased to announce that a federal lawsuit filed against us by the Philadelphia Gun Club (PGC) has been dismissed!

This is a major victory, for we have shown that you can stand up to the pigeon shooting bullies who think their wealth and political power can suppress people who dare to stand against them.

We always maintained this case was baseless, and yesterday the Court agreed, finding the PGC’s claim that we violated a federal statute was based on nothing more than their own “sheer conjecture” and unsupported by any evidence.

Although the PGC thought that their lawsuit would hinder us we have continued our efforts to document the vile pigeon shoots held by the PGC.

That lead to historic charges of animal cruelty being filed against a PGC worker when we filmed him torturing injured pigeons at the PGC on January 30th, 2016.
