WWT shoots local birds DEAD

November 24, 2013 Leave a comment Go to comments

If you have been following the Fight for Flight campaign to end the cruel mutilation of birds in zoos up and down the country you will already know that the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust have been exposed for the illegal pinioning of around 5,500 birds in their centres in England. These birds will never fly.

Today I am sorry to say that there is a tragic new development to the campaign. Following a tip off CAPS has discovered that, not only are thousands of birds being maimed by the conservation charity, but that local birds, such as mallards, coots and moorhens, are being KILLED by the WWT.

Birds that are simply going about their day-to-day lives in their natural habitat risk death by entering the reserves run by a charity whose motto is “saving wetlands for wildlife and people”.

Why are they doing this? It seems the WWT are killing these innocent birds so other species can be held captive.

Ironically, the birds that would naturally make their home in the wetland reserves run by the trust are seen as threats to the captive birds, those very same captive birds which are having their wings mutilated by pinioning.

You can read more in the Sunday Express and our website.

I know you will be as appalled as I am by this news. Please get involved in the latest stage of the Fight for Flight today, by taking one of the quick and easy actions below, to help these innocent birds.

Please act now and share widely.
