Game industry reacts to discovery of dumped pheasants

Posted on the 18th January 2019

In response to an article in the Times on the discovery of dumped pheasants, the manager of Bettws Hall Game Farm was quoted (18 January) as saying: ‘I hope they are taken to task by the appropriate authorities. One individual person is tarring the whole industry.’

Below are photos from Animal Aid’s undercover investigations at Bettws Hall in 2017 and 2018. Row upon row of breeding birds are confined in miserable metal battery cages. Contrary to the Code of Practice, many were incarcerated in barren cages without enrichment.
