Ban Pigeon Shoots Bill Introduced

Posted: March 20, 2019 06:35 PM
From: Senator Patrick M. Browne
To: All Senate members
Subject: Title 18 amendment - Offense of Cruelty to Animals

In the near future I plan to re-introduce Senate Bill 612 of the 2017-2018 legislative session. This bill amends Title 18 (Crimes and Offenses) to further provide for the offense of animal cruelty.

This legislation was co-sponsored last session by: COSTA, SABATINA, HUGHES, WARD, SCAVELLO, KILLION, LEACH, YUDICHAK, TARTAGLIONE, DINNIMAN BOSCOLA, BLAKE, FARNESE and FONTANA.

Specifically, the legislation would prohibit the use of live animals or fowl for target trap shoots and block shoots. A trap shoot involves immediately launching a moving target and a block shoot involves a tethered or stationary target. An individual who willfully organizes, operates or conducts one of these shoots commits a summary offense.

This legislation exempts all hunting or other activities authorized or permitted under Title 34 (Game Code) of the Pennsylvania Consolidated Statutes and under 58 Pa. Code CH. 147 (relating to special permits). This legislation will protect legitimate hunting activities in the Commonwealth but will also prevent the use of live animals or fowl for purely target practice activities.

I hope that you will join me in co-sponsoring this important legislation.

Here is is again after several years, a bill to protect flying rats, purveyors of disease pushed by people who live in a different world than the real one. What liberal county is Browne from?

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Browne is a Republican, in a seat that has been Republican-held for the past 23 years, and 47 of the past 67.

His Bio states he is a CPA and former tax guy with a few of the big national\international CPA firms. But he never made it to the partner status.....thus if you don't move up.....they move you out.

Can't make it in the private sector??......Become a politician.

And how far a step would this be to next banning stocked pheasants or chukars or hungariam partridges?

Perhaps we should jusr call them what they are, an invasive species.

If Sunday hunting was not already illegal, who among us would not laugh at making it so?

if this bill passes then they shouldnt be allowed to poison them or harm them in anyway. they should be left to breed and expand as much as they want.
