Can't see it being more cruel than catching a fish on a hook, playing it and finally bringing it out of its environment to die of asphyxiation. But presumably now the RSPCA have this prosecution...

I like a goat curry. Goat is usually pricier than sheep in the UK so I doubt that's the switch being made.

When it was just a few farmers supplimenting their diet it wasn't a problem. But as human populations increase the bird numbers can't be sustained so something will need to be done. Probably strict...
