Badger Killing has Begun

The badger cull has resumed in Gloucestershire and Somerset, despite overwhelming public opposition, independent scientific evidence and the fact that last year’s culls were nothing short of a fiasco. Even the government’s own Independent Expert Panel concluded that the 2013 culls were both ineffective and inhumane.

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.
