Far left activists have had the finger of blame pointed at them by newspapers, as a spate of attacks against shooting estates across Berkshire continues. Whoever is responsible are using catapults to target pheasants at night and have so far claimed hundreds of the birds.
Speculation has been made that it may be a targeted attack on shooting as it represents an elitist culture that the perpetrators wish to denounce. If this is this case, then may we remind them that their actions harm genuine, hard working and honest Game Keepers and shoot support staff up and down the country that are having their livelihoods ruined and the fact that at any shoot there is usually a maximum of 10 guns, supported by a far greater number of beaters etc. who are enjoying and earning from the day.
