There is no way of grabbing decay tables from PDG at this moment. PDG data are not defined well enough to be able to simply read them in an automated way and in places looking up details in the original papers is needed to understand the exact meaning. Also, measurements can be conflicting and such cases need to be resolved by hand anyhow. There were attempts before and they failed and introduced mistakes that were not immediately obvious.
