SHARK takes credit for flying remote helicopter shot over Pennsylvania pigeon shoot

A remote-control helicopter and camera sustained $4,000 in damage when they were shot over a pigeon shoot in Berks County, Pennsylvania State Police say.

Protesters of the shoot at the Wing Pointe Gun Club on Moselem Springs Road in Perry Township, Pa., were using the eight-rotor octocopter to film the pigeon shoot when it was damaged about 3:10 p.m. Sunday, according to a police report.

Police said they do not know the shooter's identity. The police report labels the incident as criminal mischief.

The helicopter operator, Steve Hindi, president of Geneva, Ill.-based Showing Animals Respect And Kindness, said he was able to bring the helicopter down and avoid a crash but fears it may be a total loss. A member of his animal rights group put the damage at $4,000, Hindi said.
