On February 12th, 2012, there was a very strange confrontation between an animal rights group and a hunting club, which involved guns, pigeons and a Drone-mounted camera. According to Steve Hindi, the president of SHARK (SHowing Animals Respect and Kindness), the group’s airborne drone was blasted out of the sky and sent crashing onto the roadway near the Broxton Bridge Plantation. This was apparently the group’s first attempt to interfere with the business being conducted at the Broxton Bridge Plantation, which is a sporting business that offers avid hunters with the year-round opportunity to hunt a variety of animals, including deer, hogs, ducks and pheasants. According to the Broxton Bridge Plantation website, events like this are a regular occurrance, and involve the well-planned shooting of birds for sport. “After a sporting clays warm up, pheasants take flight from a 65 foot high tower. You can really blow the dust out of the barrel on this one! Then finally we take dogs and walk up the remaining pheasants. And if that isn’t enough, everyone goes over to the Banquet Hall for a big country lunch complete with desserts, while your birds are being prepared and packaged.” While this surreal confrontation seems like something straight out of a movie, according to Hindi, it not only happened, but afterwards the shooters escaped from the scene on ATVs.
