No justification for cruel duck shooting ‘sport’
RSPCA South Australia believes there is no justification for killing and injuring native waterbirds purely for recreation. It is cruel and unnecessary.
South Australian polling (ReachTEL, 2020) suggests almost three quarters of respondents oppose duck & quail hunting and would support their MP to push for a ban.
And an Australian study suggests at least one in four birds (25%) are wounded or crippled – not killed outright – by shotgun pellets (Norman & Powell, 1981).
Please join us in calling on South Australian Leader of the Opposition, Peter Malinauskas (MP) to take action. Add your voice to the call by using our simple form.
Thank you for helping us stand up for waterbirds.
