THIS IS A CALL TO ACTION THAT EVERYBODY CAN JOIN. IT TAKES MINUTES, AND IT WILL GUARANTEE A HUGE DENT IN A HORRIBLE INDUSTRY!
It is obvious that the shooting industry in the UK has multiple weak links to be targeted, and yesterday news surfaced of yet another way we can actually squash the shooting industry for good.
Hunt Saboteurs and Stop the Cull run a joint investigation on French game farms and released a video and photos of the conditions, and whilst at it they found out that Eurotunnel is the ONLY company transporting one-day-old chicks to the UK to be reared and then shot in the countryside. ONLY two companies transport eggs to be hatched in the UK for the shooting industry, Brittany Ferries and DFDS. With the knowledge that 15 MILLION birds get sent from France to the UK every year to be murdered in organised hunts, and only three businesses doing all the transporting, we can easily stop the export denting the shooting industry massively.
Eurotunnel has already confirmed that they were unaware of the reason for transport of the day old chicks and that they are reviewing the decision. They certainly need as many people as possible to voice their opinion on the matter over telephone, email and social media. With enough people bugging them about baby birds and eggs not being a good idea to transport, they will be stopping the transport soon. Get in touch with them here:
Ring Eurotunnel customer services and ask them when they will stop the transportation of chicks and hatching eggs into the U.K.:
From the UK:+44 (0) 8443 35 35 35
From France: +33 (0) 810 63 03 04
Contact Eurotunnel via social media:
You can use the template suggested by Hunt Saboteurs or better yet write your own angry email:
After seeing the footage of pheasants and partridges in tiny barren cages, I am appalled to find out that Eurotunnel transport hatching eggs and chicks. This indefensible industry can only operate with your support.
I read with some interest that Eurotunnel regulations specific that animals will not be transported for slaughter or animal testing, surely this should extend to gamebirds as they slaughtered for sport?
I eagerly await your reply.
At the same time, we should be contacting the two ferry companies and tell them to stop the transport of hatching eggs and follow the example of P&O, another ferry company that already changed their policies about transporting game eggs into the UK.
Contact Brittany Ferries and DFDS by email and telephone number:
You can use Hunt Sabs’ email template if you fancy:
Firstly, I would like to congratulate you on your stance to no longer allow your vessels to carry gamebird chicks. However, the battery farming of gamebirds in France will continue as long as you allow hatching eggs to be transported.
I implore you to join P&O and copy their policy to not carry gamebird chicks and hatching eggs.
I eagerly await your reply.
We are ready for a victory, and this time we can win. We need this to be shared as many times as possible. We need this to stop FIFTEEN MILLION birds to be shot dead in the UK for fun. And we need it because then anyone denting the game farms in the UK will cost the industry even more money, seeing that so many birds will be “missing from the market”.
Remember that post we did about the game farms in the UK and how people have been releasing birds from them? That’s what we are talking about. A HUGE dent in a very fragile industry. Read about it below to understand what we are talking about:
So get on it, share it to all your local and international groups, insist on everybody to call and email as many times as possible, make them stop with pressure, save millions of animals. Maybe you want to take this info to your next AV or Earthlings experience and ask passersby to take action too! People power will bring the industry down.
IT IS TIME TO TAKE ACTION!
