BRACE YOURSELF - Pheasant campaign coverage

Posted 1 October 2002

Our campaign against the excesses of the pheasant rearing and shooting industry received an important boost with a feature in the Telegraph on 5th October 2002.

Scan of the Telegraph articleThe introduction to the Telegraph article reads "Rural Britain faces yet another crisis". The author, Sandy Mitchell, goes on to summarise:

"On these commercial shoots, birds are reared in such numbers that woods and fields can end up like badly kept chicken runs - and, of course, it is Emtryl that enables the control of bugs that would otherwise run rife. So many birds are shot each day, by guns paying £1,000-plus each, that the country magazines, from The Field to The Shooting Times and Country Life, have as one turned against them as 'unsporting'."
