A Dove on Pigeon-Shooting



Letter, Spoof


Hunting, Ornithology, Morality, Cruelty, Gender

    The signature to this letter may refer to Angela G Burdett-Coutts, who believed that kindness to animals should be part of national education. The author questions the writer of an article who insists that 'ladies and gentlemen' still tolerate pigeon-shooting while the 'general public' is beginning to despise it. Argues that it is unlikely that 'ladies' view pigeon-shooting with anything but 'indignation, and disgust'.
