Sad…really messed up and sad….
As reported last week, Chicago alderman James Cappleman hired an Indiana farmer to round up the pigeons on the
skies streets of the Windy City.
Turns out that this farmer actually wanted the pigeons for live pigeon shoots!!!!
Live pigeon shoots are cruel "sporting" events where pigeons are starved to near death before being shot into the air and shot with buckshot.
Chicago is doing everything it can to eradicate pigeons, with $1,000 fines for feeding them but this is too much!
The farmer has been identified as Herb Govert but he won't face any criminal charges.
Watch the video (above) to learn more about these pigeons' fates.
