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.

"The pigeon shooters are basically going into hiding," said Steve Hindi, president of SHARK. "So they're using a ring that's up a hill and completely surrounded by trees. So the only way you can get to it is through the air."

The drone, nicknamed “Angel,” was recording a live pigeon shoot on Sunday around 3 p.m. when investigators say it was suddenly struck by gunfire.

Good for the hunters. Hope they get all the drones flying over their property.......

Don't need no snoopy PETA types ..........sneaking around.

Looks like it was more of a helicopter than plane, probably flying pretty low.

Wonder how many points they got for hitting it?

Actually the Japanese eat drones. As in honeybee drone brood. Some people raise them commercially for that very purpose.

I used to eat my young pigeons when I got too many of them. Young pigeons are delicious.


Value-added products from beekeeping. Chapter 8.
"In China and Japan, drone larvae are canned for export or, after being covered in chocolate, become a sweet treat. Bee brood is regularly sold alongside honey ."
