“This well thought out documentary gives the lay man an insight into what goes on within the shooting industry. From the rearing of the birds to the actual shooting, this film explores the hidden cruelty of this so-called sport. How can killing animals either by gun or snare be called a sport, in reality, these people are no better than those who attend canned hunts in Africa!”

Gunsmoke and Mirrors, a 30 minute documentary film is the culmination of ten years of investigation work by the League Against Cruel Sports into the shooting industry in which the horrific reality of the industry from beginning to end is revealed.

Despite claims that gamebirds are wild, natural and free range we show the reality of the intensive breeding and rearing conditions, shocking proof of the millions of other animals killed each year, many in brutal snares, to protect the precious stocks for shooting. Plus, evidence of the huge amount of wastage the industry produces making it clear that this is not about food but about sport.
