Animal Rights Activists Protest Inhofe Pigeon Shoot


An animal rights group is protesting Senator Jim Inhofe’s pigeon shoot fundraising event. The group, SHARK or Showing Animals Respect and Kindness, claims the pigeon shoot in Southwestern Oklahoma violates the state’s animal humane laws. President Steve Hindi says they’ve asked law enforcement to halt the fundraiser, with no result. He has harsh words for those who take part, calling them cowards and serial animal killers.

In response, Senator Inhofe’s Chief of Staff released a statement calling the allegations ridiculous and saying no laws have been broken and no ethics violations have occurred.
