This is an endangered Freckled Duck. He wasn't supposed to be shot at, or stressed, or injured during duck shooting season. But when he fell from the sky, it took a team of volunteer rescuers, transporters, veterinary staff and wildlife carers to save his life.
A shotgun fires a cluster of up to 200 pellets. It took only three to do this to him.

Each year, as many as 50,000 native birds shot and injured are left to slowly die over a period of hours or even days. They're just 'collateral damage' of Victoria's duck shooting season. www.AnimalsAus.org/txf #BanDuckShooting #SaveOurDucks #ProtectWildlife #CrueltyisnotSport

So on my way to Lord of the Fries (again), I see this sign at a bus stop. Beginning to like Peter Siddle a lot. Obviously helps that he's vegan.

Today marks the beginning of Duck shooting season.
This is not a sport! This is grown men hiding in bushes shooting at defenceless ducks.
Thoughts are with my friends out on the wetlands helping protect lives, save the injured and collect the dead.

Victorian friends, join us on the wetlands on Saturday March 19, and together — let's help save lives! For decades, duck advocate Laurie Levy and dedicated volunteers from the Coalition Against Duck Shooting (CADS) have been tirelessly defending ducks, shot out of the sky for the sake of 'recreation& #39; . After a magistrate gave priority to shooters who kill and wound native animals, and banned Laurie from attending this year, Animals Australia's Lyn White decided to take Laurie's place on Saturday March 19 — and you're invited to join her. We MUST send the message that pandering to a tiny minority of shooters is not only bad for animals ... but it's bad for a government trying to build up its animal welfare credentials. An increased presence at the wetlands will also boost CADS' rescue efforts, as sadly we know that up to a quarter of the birds shot will be left injured. 🔸 REGISTER TODAY! The first info session (required for all duck rescue team members) will be held on Wednesday 9th March so if you'd like to be a part of it, make sure you register your details before then.

This Red-necked Avocet is a protected species, but that didn't make any difference when the shotgun pellets hit his small body. Just like all the other waterbirds, he fell from the sky, and it was left to a volunteer rescue team to urgently try to save his life.

Despite the best efforts of @RSPCAvictoria's emergency vet staff, he did not make it. His suffering, pain and distress — all for what? Shooting defenceless native animals is not 'recreation& #39; or 'sport& #39; — it's cruelty. ‪#‎BanDuckShooting‬ #SaveourDucks #UnitedforWildlife #CrueltyisnotSport 📷: @duckrescue

[WARNING: distressing scenes] Protected waterbirds killed. Animal cruelty laws flouted. Wetlands polluted. And that was just day one of Victoria's 2016 duck shooting season. This is what happens when duck shooters don't think anyone is watching — and these are the people @victorianlabor has pandered to by allowing another brutal 'recreational& #39; duck shooting season to go ahead. #BanDuckShooting #SaveourDucks #CrueltyisnotaSport #investigation

Every morning as we drive to school, we stop the car for a family of ducks crossing the road. It's conflicting as a parent to try and teach our children to show kindness towards animals when it's still legal in our state to shoot ducks and slaughter a number of endangered species during "hunting season" every year. So this morning we took our kids down to speak to our local MP to discuss the issue. It was a great experience for the kids to meet someone with ability to affect change and to be able to voice their concerns. They were with some friends and all of them drew pictures of happy ducks that they don't want to see needlessly slaughtered. To her credit, @maryannethomasmp was receptive to our comments and listened to the children's concerns, had her photo taken with them and accepted their drawings. She said she believed duck shooting had a short life span left in our state which has left us feeling hopeful but there is still a way to go. Overall it was a positive experience in teaching our kids that it is important to seize the opportunities to speak up for what you believe in and use their voices for the voiceless. My friend Ellie @saffronandindia is going to organise an opportunity for all children who care about the future of our ducks to draw their own duck pictures to present to the minister for agriculture. Stay tuned for more info about that.

A hunter taunts protesters with animals he has killed on the first day of the duck in hunt Australian wetlands. Other Australian states have banned duck hunting but it remains legal in Victoria.

Young activists bearing witness to the opening day of the duck hunt in Victoria, Australia. Hunters held up dead birds, taunting protesters. Birds who fell out of reach were left to die or were collected by rescuers who attempted to save their lives or humanely euthanize them. It was an awful morning.

Right now, in Australia, Victoria's peaceful wetlands has erupted in to a free-for-all killing field, with the 1st day of its 3 month duck shooting season.
Every year "non target" animals including swans and threatened species are also killed in the name of "sport& #34; . But as every compassionate person knows, killing and maiming wildlife is not sport, it's #violence . 1 in 4 animals shot won't die instantly and will suffer immeasurably for days and even weeks before finally succumbing to their injuries.
Violence is not a recreational sport. @animalsaustralia and the Coalition Against Duck Shooting (@duckrescue) is at the scene, to bring the reality of this carnage to the world. PLEASE share this post to help raise awareness for all the innocent and vulnerable lives who will be killed today and in the next 3 months in #VictoriasWetlands 🙏✊💚🌱 #BanDuckShooting #ShootingIsNotConservation #ShameOnVictoria #KindnessNotKilling #ProtectWildlife #SaveOurDucks #Ducks #VictorianLabor

From this morning in Victoria, Australia, bearing witness to the opening day of the duck hunt. Devastating, needless suffering and death. Thank you to all who travelled to bear witness, provide care to the animals, and protest this violence.

This morning my thoughts are with Victoria's wetlands. Another brutal season of duck shooting has just begun and the protection that is given to many species of ducks is now lifted just so a tiny minority can maim and kill wildlife all in the name of 'sport& #39; .

How is this ok?! Humans are vile, monstrous creatures.
Killing animals as a child is considered to be a trait of a serial killer in the making - but as an adult it is sport?
Every single day on this planet - animals suffer for human enjoyment. It is kept from you so you don't think about it. OPEN YOUR EYES - take notice - take advantage of google - look at what is really happening in your world - make a change for the better for another. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
