The killing

Recommended Posts

This has been going on for years.

 

 

Rare and beautiful birds - including the national bird of Britain - are being illegally shot dead for fun or trapped before being plucked, skinned and eaten - or simply discarded.  

 

Across southern Europe and North Africa birds are dying at rates that are driving endangered species to the brink of extinction.

 

From the lawless deserts of war-torn Syria to the cypress-lined fields of Italy, vast numbers are being killed.

Many of the wretched victims are shot dead or trapped in nets en-route to Britain's back gardens.
