Cero Jaulas is a Spanish campaign against the trapping of pigeons by Ciudad Real’s council. Those pigeons are live trapped as “wildlife control”, then sold to birds of pray trainers and to shooting ranges to be killed in bloodsports.
In 2022 they produced a video where they showed this process, animals being trapped in the city, sitting in the cages for up to a week with no shelter and no means to escape, to then be transported to shooting ranges and be put inside a cannon like tube that shoots them up into the sky for some brave human to blast them off the sky with a shotgun.
Over the past year, the campaign has put pressure in the local government to stop this practice both in person and over social media. Last week, they reached out to let us know some folks had also done some adhacking and send a little video.
Whilst the campaign seems young it is a great opportunity for folks to experiment all the different ways they can try in order to stop the local government from murdering pigeons in such a brutal way.
You can find them on Twitter @cerojaulas and on their website
