No justification for cruel duck shooting ‘sport’
RSPCA South Australia believes there is no justification for killing and injuring native waterbirds purely for ‘sport’. It is cruel and unnecessary.

Birds shot with a shotgun while in flight often fall wounded, but not dead. That’s because shotgun cartridges create a spray of pellets, which often miss a bird’s vital organs.
Up to 45 per cent of waterbirds are wounded, not killed outright, by shotgun pellets, according to some Australian estimates. As the video below shows, this often leads to unnecessary suffering. (WARNING: The video contains graphic content. Viewer discretion advised.)
Thank you for helping us stand up for waterbirds.
