Duck hunting, once a proud aspect of dog culture immortalized in the 1984 Nintendo classic Duck Hunt, has come under fire in recent years by certain factions in the canine community. A growing number of dogs say the practice is barbaric and have organized groups to advocate for the rights of water fowl.

One such group, Dogs Against Duck Shoots (DADS) organized a “stuffed duck hunt” today, which they say is both more humane and just as much fun and exercise as a traditional duck hunt.

“It’s basically a big scavenger hunt,” said Selma Hawkins, a spokesperson for DADS. “The dogs run through the woods, they find the stuffed duck plushies and bring them back. It’s a lot of fun, without all the dog-on-duck violence.”
