Group found shooting at birds near Pendleton homes

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — The Niagara County Sheriff's Office and the state Department of Environmental Conservation are investigating an incident involving several people shooting at wild birds close to homes on Campbell Boulevard in Pendleton.

A group of residents said they heard shooting about 4:30 Sunday afternoon and saw a pickup truck and three men shooting at wild fowl in a nearby open field. The residents went to confront the men about shooting so close to homes, but the men took off in the pickup.

According to the sheriff's office, two dead geese were left in the field and it's believed that the hunters shot six other birds.

Deputies tracked the license plate on the pickup to the parents of one of the suspects. A report was filed and the case will be handled by the DEC.
