Things must be bad at Animal Aid – their latest 'report' is hilarious. Talk about clutching at straws!
It reveals – wait for it – it costs more to produce a pheasant than it's worth on the supermarket shelf.
And – gasp – game is promoted by pro-shooting organisations like BASC and Countryside Alliance.
Wait, there's more... apparently, cartridges are quite expensive nowadays – eek! And on and on.
I laughed out loud when I saw Animal Aid, of all people, rubbishing surveys and questionnaires. Apparently results are possibly biased towards people who have strong views on particular issues. Oh really? You mean like the "opinion polls" constantly quoted by antis to "prove" that the public oppose hunting, fishing, snaring, eating meat, wearing tweed or talking a bit posh.
Dress that up with a few irrelevant but ugly photos of "dumped body parts" (looks to me like wings trimmed from pheasants being prepared for the oven), "incarcerated" pheasants and dead foxes, and – hey presto – you have a "damning new report".
Damning it certainly is – it shows how desperate the antis have become, now that what remains of their support is dwindling away!
