According to news reports, dozens of pigeons were netted and taken from a Ward 46 neighborhood in Chicago this week by two Indiana "farmers." The men allegedly claimed that they would be transporting the animals to Indiana for "release" and that their activities were sanctioned by a local city commissioner. Sadly, when pigeons are transported out of areas where they are unwanted, they are typically given to hunters as live bait for dog training, used in notoriously cruel pigeon shoots, or sold for vivisection! While Ward 46 Commissioner James Cappleman denies hiring these men, his office has not refuted knowingly allowing them to trap and transport Chicago's pigeons to Indiana, in violation of Indiana law. Alarmingly, the Indiana Department of Natural Resources advised PETA that Cappleman won't identify the men, so they cannot yet be held accountable. Your voice is needed!

Please implore Ward 46 Commissioner James Cappleman to cooperate with law enforcement in order to ensure that any cruel and illegal pigeon control activity is immediately halted, and please forward this message widely!

I live in IN and I'd say the odds are 99.999 % that the pigeons are dead!

Noted- so THAT is how medical schools wind up with pigeons in their dissection classes!!!! I was horrified to learn that is how they also get cats.

James Cappleman's name seems to fit him; he sound like he's full of cap.

In my large apartment complex, there are many happy pigeons.

But at the parking lot next door, hunting, hunting, hunting, for sustenance!
