The front of the leaflet reads as follows ;-

The John Lewis Partnership owners of Waitrose, goes to great lengths
to promote itself as an ethical, caring and compassionate company.
The reality however, is somewhat different, with tens of thousands
of pheasants needlessly massacred every year in shoots to entertain
John Lewis Partners.

Up to three times a week at the Leckford Abbas Estate near Stockbridge, Hants, parties of drunken John Lewis
staff blast away at the pheasants, along with ducks, grouse, pigeons, squirrels and anything else that moves.

Inevitably many of the birds, described by one sickened member of staff as "harmless creatures, so young
they could barely fly", are simply wounded, only to die an agonising and prolonged deaths from their injuries.

The staff member tells John Lewis pheasants spend their first weeks "factory farmed indoors, in
overcrowded conditions in the pitch dark.

Prior to the shoots, the birds are released onto the estate, but are provided with regular food and water to
encourage them to remain in the area. Once a particular field has been "shot", however, food and water is
withdrawn, leaving any ramaining birds to starve.

Help us to stop the carnage - please turn over for details.
