HARRISBURG, PA – A new statewide television commercial – narrated by legendary game show host Bob Barker and graphically showing gross animal cruelty at Pennsylvania pigeon shoots – will be unveiled here Tuesday. It's expected to air on CNN, FoxNews and other networks this week.
The news conference to preview the commercial and details of the campaign will be held TUESDAY/SEPT. 9 at 11:30 a.m. at the State Capitol Rotunda.
The sometimes graphic 30-second commercial encourages the Pennsylvania legislature to immediately pass HB 1750, which would outlaw the use a dog, cat or other animal – such as a pigeon – as a live target. It also criminalizes the eating of dogs and cats. Violation would be a felony after the first conviction, which would be a misdemeanor.
SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness (SHARK) is sponsoring the ad campaign. The international animal protection organization received a $1 million grant from Bob Barker in 2010 to help continue its fight to outlaw pigeon shooting and other cruelty to animals.
