LEAF Speak Out: Difficult Questions - Sport/Hunting

Why do you shoot pheasants?

Like fish­ing, pheas­ant shoot­ing is a coun­try pur­suit that some peo­ple choose to do. Many peo­ple who shoot aren’t farm­ers. Teach­ers, doc­tors, lawyers and many oth­er peo­ple in soci­ety enjoy this sport. The pheas­ants are reared specif­i­cal­ly for shoots. Some peo­ple who shoot pheas­ants make part of their liv­ing from sup­ply­ing pheas­ants (game) to butch­ers and restaurants. 

Why do you want to kill badgers?

Bad­gers have been proven to car­ry tuber­cu­lo­sis (TB) and the UK food stan­dards will not allow ani­mals with TB to sup­ply our food chain. TB affects cows (milk and beef), deer (veni­son) and goats (milk and meat).
