Watch the video of the horrific torture and killing committed by Ryan Haas. This was held at a live pigeon shoot at the Wing Pointe canned hunt club in Hamburg, PA.
Please contact Berks County District Attorney John Adams and politely tell him that Ryan Haas must be prosecuted for his horrific acts of animal cruelty. Remind DA Adams that he said, in this article, that he would prosecute people who torture animals as Haas did.

Letter SHARK sent to the Pennsylvania State Police (Jan 2, 2013) regarding Ryan Haas:
Commissioner of the Pennsylvania State Police
Dear Commissioner Noonan,
I have written to you in the past regarding the dangerous and violent actions taken by participants of live pigeon shoots in Pennsylvania, specifically, what has happened at the Wing Pointe commercial hunting ground in Berks County PA. Sadly, your office and the State Police have taken no action.
This past October, we invited you to attend a press conference we held in Harrisburg to view what were some of the most horrific and cruel acts ever committed at a pigeon shoot. No one from your office attended and you seemed to care not at all. If you had shown, you would have witnessed one young man, dressed in black, who tortured pigeons in the most vile and disgusting way. You can watch some of what happened in this video link.
Is it unreasonable to think that, because the man in black laughed while he tore those birds apart, that he might have some form mental illness that needed to be addressed? We felt at the time that this person and his accomplices potentially posed a threat to people. Again, and unfortunately, no one from the State Police cared enough to even try to find out who this person was or to charge him for violating Pennsylvania's anti-cruelty statute.
Thanks to a recent newspaper article (see picture #6), we know now who he is. His name is Ryan Haas, and according to his Facebook page he lives in Fleetwood, Pennsylvania.
What we found when we viewed his public Facebook page shocked us: Mr. Haas not only posted vile racist comments, but he wrote this extremely disturbing post, where he appears to fantasize about killing his family:
As you can see in the video, Haas has access to weapons and knows how to use them. From his demeanor during his pigeon torture (laughing, smiling) we believe he enjoyed killing those animals in the most vicious way. Now we see that he has fantasized about killing his own family. With all these factors, and with the recent tragedy in Newton still in our minds, we felt it our duty to make sure that you were aware of this situation.
Commissioner Noonan, you've ignored the violence and threat to human safety that pigeon shooters represent before. We hope that you will not ignore these blatant signs again.
PS: Here is one of his racist posts. I can send you more if you want, or you can view them for yourself on his Facebook page.
