RSPCA Victoria vows to stop attacking duck hunting

RSPCA Victoria has vowed to stop attacking duck hunting after an independent review into the branch found the “tone and emotion” of such campaigns had negatively infringed on the work of inspectors.

RSPCA Victoria CEO Liz Walker told the ABC that: “We certainly understand that over the past few years there have been issues which we have campaigned on, and their tone and the way we have done that definitely impacted on trust with our stakeholders and we apologise for that.”

The SSAA-LA applauds this pragmatic decision and apparent acceptance of duck hunting as a legitimate form of harvesting free-range food for the table and we implore other RSPCA branches to adopt this view.
