Wildfowl and Wetland Trust found to conduct illegal mutilations

Posted 29 April 2013

An investigation by the Captive Animals’ Protection Society has found that UK charity, the Wildfowl and Wetland Trust, has been amputating the wings of newly hatched birds without veterinary supervision, as is required by law.

The mutilation, known as ‘pinioning’, prevents the birds from flying away and has been carried out at their water reserves for decades.
