New Videos Expose Shooting & Snaring Cruelty


Two new videos expose the cruelty of shooting and snaring!

Yesterday marked the release of two new League videos highlighting the cruelty inflicted upon animals for the shooting industry.

The first film, titled ‘Blood Still on the Wire’ was released to coincide with the start of the grouse shooting season. The 'Glorious Twelfth' traditionally celebrates the first day of shooting but the League is using this to highlight the terrible suffering caused by snares on Scottish estates rearing game birds for shooting.


Our film which is also accompanied by a report, documents how the recently introduced Snaring (Scotland) Order 2010 has done very little to eradicate the threat snares pose to the welfare of animals.

The second film ‘A Good Shot’, filmed on estates in England, graphically illustrates the extent of suffering inflicted on game birds and exposes the reality of commercial shooting in response to the spin and propaganda peddled by the industry.


The footage gathered in both of these films completely contradicts the various claims by the industry such as; most birds are killed outright and if not are immediately retrieved by gun dogs and dispatched, and the claim that animals captured in snares do not suffer.

If these videos have shocked you, you can contact the Rt Hon Caroline Spelman MP, Secretary for Environment Food and Rural Affairs, to call for an end to the manufacture, sale and use of snares in England and Wales.
