SPRING HUNTING IN MALTA – THIS MUST STOP!!!

PLEASE PASS THE MESSAGE ON! THANK YOU.

THREE MILLION birds are being shot or trapped, by thousands of hunters yearly. These are OUR birds. Birds that we are seeing less and less of, as each year passes. I really just don't get it. Why, why does someone want to stand and shoot a living creature for fun.

"Malta has one of the world's highest number of hunters per capita, who shoot and kill any bird that flies. The skies over Malta and the surrounding sea are devoid of birds. Each year, 3 million birds are shot or trapped on Malta while migrating between Africa and Europe in the spring and autumn, leading to a gradual decline of these beloved European birds that traditionally seek refuge in Malta.
