Cross-channel ferry operator Brittany Ferries has stopped shipping pheasant chicks from France to England after seeing a League Against Cruel Sports video showing the cruelty associated with the UK's commercial pheasant shooting industry.
Brittany Ferries had been transporting the young pheasants from France where they are bred for the UK's shooting industry. The factory farmed birds end up at shooting estates across the UK where they are shot dead for entertainment. But having seen the animal welfare charity's video depicting the miserable life suffered by the pheasants, the ferry operator has announced it no longer wants to play a part in this cruel business.
