The shocking truth - that many of these intensively reared birds are shot primarily for sport and buried instead of eaten - actually originates from shooting insiders. On several occasions, pro-shooting magazines have reported that pheasants are buried in pits. If any more evidence is required, photographs of numerous birds who have been dumped by the roadside have appeared in the East Anglian Daily Times.
The shooting fraternity is in denial over the state of their industry because they fear that, after hunting, shooting will be next.
