||RSPCA Australia is opposed to the hunting of any animal for sport as it causes unnecessary injury, pain, suffering, distress or death to the animals involved.
||RSPCA Australia advocates the use of alternatives to the hunting of animals for sport such as target shooting and drag hunting, where dogs chase a non-animal lure or scent.
Note: Hunting for sport includes, but is not limited to, hunting with hounds, coursing, pig hunting, bow hunting, trophy hunting and all forms of recreational shooting (e.g. kangaroo shooting, duck, quail and other game shooting).
