Non-native gamebirds challenge – what they say

Seven week old pheasant poults, after just being released into a gamekeeper’s release pen on an English shooting estate

The Guardian covered our legal challenge – very accurately – click here.

One of us, Mark, was on talkRADIO this afternoon – that was fun.

Amongst many messages of support we’ve received was this email:

I’ve just heard Mark Avery on talkRADIO and thought he was absolutely amazing, a brilliant spokesperson.  What is staggering is that he said this could go either way in the courts and I dont understand why.  Anyway if there is a campaign I can sign I would love to.  It disgusts me and upsets me how these birds are treated in the name of “sport”.    I do everything I can to look after the birds in my little garden they are all fed all year round.  What is it with some humans who just want to kill and destroy defenceless animals

Well done for your great work in highlighting such a huge issue to the public. 

DEFRA need to pull their finger out.
