Brits abroad killing our Turtle Doves?

Had to read this twice, still can't quite believe it.

A British company offering trips to Morocco to shoot Turtle Doves.

I am not a part of the anti-shooting brigade in England; in-fact, conservation and management for 'game' can be one and the same thing. But the above is totally inexcusable, and grim.

Birdlife International have urged people to contact the company via email and lodge their opposition.
But then, you don't need me to tell you that the Turtle Dove has been subject to massive declines, and is now globally threatened. These are our Doves, and we want them back next year.
