    Duck Hunters Out Shooting, Despite Victoria’s State-Wide Lockdown
    Victoria’s annual duck hunting season lasted all of 24 hours before lockdown measures began to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the state. Keeping ducks safe was a silver lining to yet another difficult period of isolation.
    However, many hunters have found a way to continue their cruel habits. Those living within 5 kilometres of a wildlife reserve are still out shooting, dubiously claiming that it’s a form of “exercise” under the lockdown rules.
