Anti-Shooting Week looming

AUGUST 12 marked the start of the grouse shooting season, during which shooters will kill around half-a-million birds.

Just ahead of the next big date in the shooting calendar – the start of the pheasant shooting season – Animal Aid will hold its National Anti-Shooting Week (September 22-28).

Supporters will be calling on their MPs to back our campaign for a ban on the battery cages in which pheasants and partridges used for breeding are confined.
