BREAKING NEWS: Shooters have been banned from four of Victoria’s most popular wetlands, including the Koorangie Game Reserve where we reported live from last week — and where hundreds of native waterbirds were massacred or left for dead over ‘opening weekend’. The decision came just hours after Animals Australia lodged the most extensive legal complaint to date, detailing shocking cruelty and illegal shooter behaviour last weekend. And the bodies of 1,200 birds left for dead and rescued by brave volunteers from Coalition Against Duck Shooting (@duckrescue) have made this wildlife catastrophe impossible to ignore.
Tragically, this closure comes too late to save the dozens of ‘protected’ Freckled and Blue-billed ducks who were slaughtered in just two days of shooting, but thousands more waterbirds will now find safe haven in the wetlands.

This is a great win for animals, but we still have work to do. Get all the details and join us as we continue the fight against this 'recreational' slaughter of wildlife: www.AnimalsAus.org/tV2 #BanDuckShooting # victory #crueltyisnotsport #ShootingisNotConservation #wildliferescue #duckrescue

Please share @animalsaustralia's facts about duck shooting today as the Victoria Governement has just commenced a full duck shooting season. 🦆😔 /// Shooting groups acknowledge that at least ONE IN EVERY FOUR birds targeted will be wounded - amounting to many thousands of ducks left to languish and potentially die from untreated injuries. What a disgrace. 😡👎 /// #BanDuckShooting #ShootingIsNotConservation #mundanematters Facts from @AnimalsAustralia

She had been shot in the head and was still alive when rescuers found her. She died within the first hour of the first day of a three-month duck shooting season.
Disgraceful, Victorian Labor. #BanDuckShooting #ShootingIsNotConservation

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.

We are minutes away from the start of Victoria's brutal duck shooting season. We are at the wetlands.
We are ready.
⏩ LIVE UPDATES VIA TWITTER: www.twitter.com/AnimalsAus ⏪ #BanDuckShooting #CrueltyIsNotSport #ShootingIsNotConservation

In just hours, Victoria's peaceful wetlands will erupt into killing fields. Another brutal duck shooting season has been allowed, and the protection that is normally afforded to many species of duck will be lifted by the Victorian Labor government — so a tiny minority of shooters can maim and kill wildlife.
Every year, 'non target' animals including swans and threatened species are also shot in this brutal slaughter. All in the name of 'sport'.
As the sun rises tomorrow, birds will start falling from the sky. Animals Australia will be there, standing side-by-side with our friends at Coalition Against Duck Shooting (@duckrescue) to bring the reality of this carnage to the world.
Help us do this by SHARING content across your social media accounts tomorrow. Follow us on social to stay updated and share across your channels. Don't let politicians who pander to shooters turn their backs on what it is they are really supporting: violence against precious native animals.

What brave young ladies bearing witness to such cruelty. With tears in their eyes they refuse to turn away from the pain as hunters taunt them with their 'trophies' from the shoot. Nothing about this is right yet these #youngheroes show us that #empathyispower ... Thank you for being the new voices for a kinder world 💔💚Rxo . . .

Victoria is the only Australian state still allowing shooting of game birds on wetlands during the annual duck shooting season. Only several game birds are allowed to be shot, but more than often,protected birds listed as vulnerable or endangered are also illegally shot.

Every year,volunteers,vets and nurses have been on standby to treat or humanely euthanize birds that are cruely left to die,and to pick up pellet shells (that would otherwise pollute the waterways),beer bottles and other litter left by shooters,who often call themselves ‘conservationists`. This shooting season,volunteers have picked up 810 dead waterbirds,of which 68 were Freckled ducks-Australia`s rarest waterbird. #victoriaduckshootingseason #victoria #coalitionagainstduckshooting #animalsaustralia #conservation #wetland #gamebirds #waterfowl #ducks #birdsofinstagram #bird #ducksofinstagram . #🐣 #australiantourism #australia #animalsasia #endangered #protected #protectwildlife #birding #birdwatching #birders #wetlandtourism #shootingisnotconservation #nature #environment #birdlifeoz #birdsofaustralia
