In our last update we told you that we were in Oklahoma to film a cruel live pigeon shoot political fundraiser held by Jim Inhofe, the United States Senator from Oklahoma.
Even though Inhofe tried to hide where he was going to shoot, we found the location, Robbins Farm, which is in Greer County, OK. We set up legally on the side of a public road and then sent up our drone, called the “Angel” to film the shoot.
