PETA Wants Prince William & Prince Harry To Stop Bird Hunting

It looks like Prince William and Prince Harry have become the latest target of PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals). PETA President Ingrid Newkirk sent a letter to the Duchess of Cambridge after it was reported that William had purchased 250 pheasants, ducks and partridges for a shoot at the Queen’s Sandringham Estate for his brother Harry’s 27th birthday. She asked Kate to put a stop to this pastime, even though bird hunting is a Royal tradition that has been happening for centuries.

“May I ask you to use your influence on the Princes and ask them to reconsider this gift? Please ask the Princes to open their hearts to the suffering of birds casually used as skeet and make the compassionate decision not to kill for fun. By cancelling the planned “day’s sport” in favour of a more enlightened, fitting and humane pursuit, they will win hearts and commendations and spare hundreds of birds a terrifying end, making it clear that the monarchy is in tune with the social movement against cruelty to animals.”
