Hello Everyone

I've been asked to locate and source advice and guidance about the humane killing and eating of animals as part of an outdoor session with children and young people.


I have been told by a friend that he thought this may be more common in the US. I'm particularly interested in know about small animals such as rabbits, chickens and fish.


Many thanks in advance

Ever consider creating a listserv to email out events like the outdoor nation? or is there a listserv that I'm just not on that would have told me about it?  I would have loved to have gone.
