14:15 Animal Aid Game birds – the forgotten victims of factory farming Most people think that ‘sport’ shooting only involves wild animals. In fact, game bird shooting is propped up by a shocking factory farming regime.
Animal Aid’s undercover investigations have repeatedly exposed appalling conditions on game bird breeding farms. The birds used to lay eggs are often kept in cramped battery cages, where they suffer a miserable existence. We would like to see an end to all blood sports, but a ban on these cruel cages is a vital interim measure that would seriously limit the number of birds who could be bred, and therefore shot.
Our campaign to ban cages for game birds is gathering huge momentum. People in Oxford are in an especially strong position to help us win. Please come along and find out how you can help.
