Shooters Exposed: An Operation Bright Light Special Edition
In this update, we are going to hit on
recent pigeon shoots at three different locations; Wing Pointe, the
Philadelphia Gun Club in Pennsylvania, and the Broxton Bridge
Plantation in South Carolina.

We promised you we would expose pigeon shooters who attended
the illegal Broxton Bridge Plantation slaughter. Today we make good
on that promise with the first, but in no way last, disclosure of
the identity of a participant in the shameful slaughter in South
Meet Joseph Ongenars of Rockford, Illinois.
Amazingly, this is not SHARK's first encounter with the onerous

pigeon shoots in Illinois. At the very last pigeon shoot, where we
called the police to shut down the then illegal event, one of the
shooters came up to us. Here's a picture from that shoot in 1992.
Seems Joe didn't learn the lesson SHARK taught him and
his cohorts in cruelty two decades ago. Now he has to run all the
way to South Carolina to illegally kill pigeons - and we're there
once again to fight him.
The Death of Hunting
In this new video with footage
taken from a February 18, 2012 pigeon shoot held at Wing Pointe,
SHARK makes the case that hunting is dead.
We're not talking
about the animal serial killing that goes on today, but rather,
traditional hunting that was based on a code of ethics such as fair
chase, retrieving the wounded, not wasting your kill, following the
law, etc. Watch the video for the entire story.

Operation Bright Light Shines on Donald Kass
After more than two months of being shut down, this past Saturday
the Philadelphia Gun Club (PGC) held a small pigeon shoot. In the
next section we will show you pictures of many of those at the PGC
that day, but there was one person who really stood out, and that
was because of this:

It's always interesting to watch a man who just slaughtered innocent
birds hide like a coward from a camera lens. What's even more
interesting is that this particular guy would think that we would
forget such a memorable license plate.

none other than Donald Kass, former Secretary for the PGC who SHARK

Burroughs had a problem with one of their executives being seen

The only way to know is to ask.
Please contact the following at Burroughs and ask them if they know
why Mr. Kass was so desperate to hide his face after attending a
horrific slaughter of pigeons. Please be polite.
