The drone, nicknamed â€śAngel,â€ť was recording a live pigeon shoot on Sunday around 3 p.m. when investigators say it was suddenly struck by gunfire.
SHARK claimed â€śa single sharp rifle crack rang out,â€ť in a press release sent out on Monday. The group says the cameraâ€™s video feed was terminated and the drone went out of control before it was manually brought down. The gunshot caused around $4,000 in damage to the camera, according to SHARK.
State Police are investigating the incident. SHARKÂ claims this is the fourth time the drone has been shot at while trying to spy on what they claim are inhumane pigeon shoots.
