Bensalem gun club hosting pigeon shoots cooperates to settle suit

September 24, 2012

A Bensalem gun club that conducts the cruel sport of live pigeon shoots along the Delaware River has agreed to apply for an environmental permit to settle a federal lawsuit.

"There's nothing that requires the club to stop shooting," Philadelphia Gun Club lawyer Sean Corr said Friday. "This was a nuisance settlement to eliminate attorney's fees going forward."

The club also agreed to pay $15,000 to the Delaware Riverkeeper Network, which filed suit in March.
