Animal rights activists descend on MP's office


ANIMAL rights activists targeted Newbury MP Richard Benyon's office yesterday (Wednesday) to protest against the coalition government's support for battery-bred pheasants.

Animal Aid blames the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra), which Mr Benyon presides over as minister, for the Government's decision to overturn a Labour-led ban on the caged breeding of pheasants to be used for hunting.

Two protesters from the group, one dressed as a pheasant, visited his Cheap Street office to hand over an information pack on what they described as the mistreatment of pheasants.
