The Plight of the Bumblebee

The humble bumblebee may soon be facing extinction due to the cruelty, disregard and decreasingly bad eating habits of the human race!

We’d like to ask YOU to join us in protest against the cruel and barbaric baking of bees and help STOP this madness!

The poor bumblebees are bred in small hives where they are cooped up in numbers of 200 or more at a time! They are fattened up on pollen and steroids before being stunned by an aerosol spray and spread out on a baking tray and baked in an oven at 200° Celsius (gas mark 6) for approximately 30 minutes. Some bees are still alive and suffer horribly before they are plucked & shaved and finally drowned in tomato sauce and tinned for human consumption.

Help us to raise awareness of the plight of the bumblebee by printing out and wearing our free cut out and keep ‘Free the Bees’ badge. Thankyou.
