Bullet in the head for a long-haul horse

Our undercover investigators took photographs the racing industry does not want the public to see. They show Wigmore Hall moments after breaking his leg at Doncaster Racecourse, and then being shot in the head by a vet.

Screened off in order to be out of sight from the race-going public in the grandstands, Wigmore Hall's unceremonious death was brought about by a bullet from a silent pistol.

United Utilities Calls off the Cull!

Campaign by Bird Lover and Animal Aid Successful

When bird lover David Kennedy discovered that Canada geese were being shot at Lingley Mere – a lake owned by Warrington-based United Utilities – he felt he had to speak out. David, who lives about 10 miles from Lingley Mere, knew that a proposed cull of geese at Lake Windermere had been halted when the local authority was persuaded to put into place non-lethal control plans, and he contacted United Utilities to urge them to do the same.

Take action against battery cages for 'gamebirds'

The focus of this year’s National Anti-Shooting Week (22 - 28 September) is our campaign to ban the battery cages that are used to incarcerate breeding pheasants and partridges. We view the abolition of these contraptions – known in industry circles as 'raised-laying cages' – as an important first step towards the end of all ‘sport’ shooting.
