Take action for game birds

Every year, around 50 million pheasants and partridges are purpose-bred for the shooting industry. Animal Aid continues to call for a ban on the production of birds for ‘sport’ shooting. But as an important interim measure, we are campaigning for an end to the battery cages in which thousands of ‘game' birds used for egg production are incarcerated.

Take action!

Write to your MP, asking for his or her support for the campaign to ban these cruel cages.

Watch – and share!
