Ban the Bird Market - Victory for animal welfare campaigners as Royal Agricultural Society cancel event in response to protests
Britain's largest exotic bird market, the National Cage & Aviary Birds Exhibition, has been pulled by the venue owners - the Royal Agricultural Society of England. The event, which was scheduled to take place at Stoneleigh Park on December 4 & 5, would have seen up to 100,000 birds - many brutally torn from the wild - up for sale.
National Cage & Aviary Bird Exhibition is cancelled following a two year campaign.
