National Anti-Shooting Week

Animal Aid’s National Anti-Shooting Week takes place at the end of the September, just ahead of the start of the pheasant shooting season.

Please help with this year’s National Anti-Shooting Week, which runs from 23 to 29 September. We are focusing on our campaign to ban the cruel battery cages for breeding pheasants and partridges.

Animal Aid investigators filmed at a huge game farm where an estimated 35-40,000 pheasants and partridges were kept in these cages. Many of the partridges were imprisoned in barren units – in breach of the Welfare Code for game birds – but even ‘enriched’ cages offer little stimulation for these semi-wild birds.

Can you run a street stall or leafleting event during the week of action? Or perhaps, you can order some of our postcards and ask friends and family to send them to their MP?

Get involved now!
