Pheasant and partridge shooting
The Gamebird Industry: It's not a game. It's a disgrace.
Every year in Britain, more than 45 million pheasants and partridges are mass produced inside hatcheries and rearing sheds. From the sheds, they are moved to fattening pens before being released to serve as feathered targets for shooters.
The ‘game’ bird industry is where factory farming meets a live shooting gallery.
The suffering experienced by these birds while they are being fattened for the kill, and as they repeatedly run the gauntlet of the guns, cannot plausibly be justified.
National Anti-Shooting Week
National Anti-Shooting Week takes place towards the end of September, just before the start of the pheasant shooting season on 1 October.
