Animal Protection Group Shuts Down US Senator Inhofe’s Pigeon Shoot

– Pigeon Supplier Leaves with Crates of Live Pigeons

LONE WOLF, OK – SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) shut down a live pigeon shoot fundraiser held Friday afternoon by US Senator Jim Inhofe (R-OK), the international animal protection group reported. SHARK said it will also monitor an Inhofe Dove Hunt Saturday if it goes on as scheduled.

According to SHARK, the story begins at the Quartz Mountain Lodge in Lone Wolf, OK, which was the sign-in location for Senator Inhofe’s pigeon shoot.  Activists followed the procession of vehicles when they left the lodge to go to the shooting area.  The Inhofe party went through extreme measures to lose SHARK, including driving the rear cars at extremely slow speeds on the highway to block the activists.

Inhofe’s team successfully lost the activists – except for one car, which eventually led the rest of the activists to the shoot, which was located down 10 miles of washboard dirt roads. The shoot site was located off of N2113 road in Lone Wolf.

Once SHARK launched its Angel drone, the shooting of birds stopped. Almost immediately vehicles started leaving. A trickle quickly became a flood, as was video documented. This included the person who supplied the pigeons. He left with many still living birds in his vehicle. The entire pigeon shoot was over.

“This a major victory,” said SHARK President Steve Hindi. “In 2014, when our investigator was at the event undercover, the shoot lasted more than an hour and forty-five minutes and there were ten shooting stations. This year there were only six shooting stations and the shoot was only about forty-five minutes long. All of this represents a dramatic reduction in shooters and time spent killing since SHARK first exposed Inhofe’s cruel fundraiser. Clearly the pressure is on Inhofe and we will not be letting up.”

  1. Great news. Steve Hindi and SHARK have been trying to shut down the Pennsylvania pigeon shoots too. They were a really nasty group who seemed to have the authorities on their side. The hunters there shot the drones too.

    I’m sure Inhofe is in a snit and planning revenge. He was one of the main forces in getting the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act passed. I’m guessing he’ll try to define SHARK as guilty.

  2. Lasted only 45 minutes with 6 shooting stations is still ghastly. Senator Snowball should try some other way of raising money than with these disgusting animal torturers. Are most of them in OK like this? I doubt that. Many shooters who come to PA pigeon shoots are from out of state. SHARK should shut all of them down.

  3. Thanks for this Jim!

    I called Janet Enoch at SHARK immediately after reading your email and through lots of tears and thanked SHARK soooo much for this amazing victory!

    She didn¹t know IndyBay.org had covered it so she was really grateful to see the link I sent her!

    SHARK will of course send out their own text and videos sometime soon.

    A gazillion horrors and one victory relieves a TEENY bit of the horror and despair…
