Here’s an update on the story of the NJ bowhunters who drugged pheasants before shooting them.
In response to the media coverage of the case on NJ 101.5 FM and in the local paper, the bowhunters have finally spoken up, though only to deny the charges. According to an email update distributed by Animal Protection PAC, the UBNJ is now claiming that the birds were not drugged and that they didn’t kick them. The group states that what its activities were “standard practice.” The group has also since removed the incriminating video from its website.
Here’s Animal Protection PAC’s list of things you can do to help:
1. Contact Governor John Corzine and ask that all live bird shoots be banned and a severe penalty be given to those who break the law. Also please tell him that in no way should the Division of Fish and Wildlife be given $4,000,000 of our tax money in the new budget, as this money subsidizes hunters like those who took part in this filthy killing.
