Gun lobby under fire
The gun lobby has today suffered a serious body blow with the publication of two scientifically robust reports that, on the one hand, demolishes claims that ‘sport shooting’ is immensely valuable to the UK economy and, on the other, accuses owners of grouse moors who burn heather – a common practice – of polluting rivers, damaging the landscape and contributing to climate change.More about the two reports into the sport shooting industry and grouse moor management
One-In-Eight British Adults Is Veggie
A survey conducted by Mintel has found that one-in-eight British adults has ditched meat and fish, with that number rising to one-in-five for younger people aged 16-24. The research found that millions more people have also reduced their meat consumption. This huge growth in the popularity of vegetarianism is great news and means that far fewer farmed animals will suffer and die for the sake of the nation’s food.

Government kills parakeets
Animal Aid campaigns for all wildlife and, for several years, we have worked alongside local campaigners to try to stop the government ‘cull’ of a tiny number of monk parakeets living in the wild around London and Hertfordshire.
Despite there being so few monk parakeets, and no evidence that they cause agricultural damage or have nested on pylons, the government has spent £259,000 killing some and ‘rehousing’ others.Moreabout the killing of monk parakeets Read the article in the Daily Mail
