Illegal capture of large number of falcons

A video showing large number of (mainly) Lanner Falcons illegally captured and held together in captivity.

Some of you have certainly already seen it.

This makes me alternatingly extremely angry and wanting to cry. To think of these magnificent creatures being treated like battery hens is absolutely despicable.

Treating battery hens the way they do is equally despicable, but I understand your sentiment.

yes. did not mean to convey an opinion that I thought it was ok for battery hens. As much as I do not like that (I will only ever buy free range produce) either as you say I was simply drawing the comparison to truly awful conditions in which to keep any living creature.
