Fieldsports Britain : RSPCA kills an eagle, plus learn to ferret and catch carp (episode 6)
This poor eagle is in the hands of Kent falconer and Fieldsports Channel falconry expert Roy Lupton. It’s a poor eagle because it was soon to be dead, following a catalogue of errors made by the RSPCA, DEFRA and the RSPB. We tell its story, including horrifying footage of the conditions the RSPCA made the bird endure at one of its ‘animal rescue’ centres.
But this half-hour Fieldsports Britain show is not all doom and gloom! This week, we are:
• Rabbiting with ferrets and a lurcher with Shooting Times expert Simon Whitehead
• Shooting pheasants with students on the Plumpton College gamekeeping course
• Learning how to shoot woodcock with the experts at West London Shooting School
• Catching colossal carp at a world championship carp match
Pour yourself a drink, gather round the flickering screen and watch this week’s half-hour show. Bet we’re the best thing on the web or the telly tonight!
