Shooting

Animals in Entertainment, Sport, and Work

SPCA opposes the shooting of animals for “sport”, as SPCA does not believe that the harm and suffering caused to birds and other animals is ever justified as a pastime or for the entertainment of people.

SPCA opposes the use of air weapons or bows in the shooting of animals due to the pain and distress that can be caused.

SPCA is opposes to the use of lead ammunition in circumstances where the spent pellets might be ingested by, and consequently poison, other animals and contaminate the environment.
