It was a truly uplifting experience knowing our evening's work was saving all these individual lives from a hellish daily experience.
JOEL COOPER: ‘An animal rights group claims to have taken responsibility for releasing between 3,000 and 16,000 pheasants from a farm in North Devon. In an email to Bite Back Magazine… a group called the Animal Liberation Front says its members released the birds from Southern Partridges Ltd at Court Barton, Yarnscombe, near Barnstaple, at the weekend. The group suggest the incident could be the “biggest release in the history” of the organisation – though the number of birds released varies between their estimate and that of the police’s. The Animal Liberation Front say they freed between 12,000 and 16,000 birds, while the police estimate the number at 3,000.
The email says: “On the evening of the 14th April 2018, our group entered onto the one and half acre site owned by Southern Partridges… We worked hard and in less than two hours we’d opened as many as we could, the air was thick with birds, partridges flew around us constantly. It was a truly uplifting experience knowing our evening’s work was saving all these individual lives from a hellish daily experience, not only that, but also none of their offspring would be taken and sold on to gamekeepers. That night we dealt a huge blow to the partridge shooting industry in the UK and those involved in this disgusting activity would be foolish not to expect more from us”.
“Until every cage is empty, Animal Liberation Front”.’ SOURCE…
