Let me just get this out first—Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
That's better. Now, you would think that by 2009 something as horribly cruel as duck shooting would be banned. Some states in Australia are up with the times—NSW, WA and QLD have all banned duck shooting—however several states still remain in the dark ages and allow it to continue.
Duck shooting is a cruel excuse for a 'sport' where there is no special training required to get a duck shooting licence, and for every three birds killed, another is wounded and left to die a slow and painful death.
The Victorian government recently declared a duck hunting season for 2009 and we’re angry! We need you kind folks to call on Gavin Jennings (VIC Environment Minister) to ban duck shooting before the season commences on March 21.
Take action for ducks! And while you're at it check out our new birdy banner. Stick it on your myspace to encourage others to get active.
