What a way to go! A woman from Streatham has had her cremated husband's remains put into a batch of shotgun cartridges so that 20 of his friends could go and bag some wildlife. It seems one dead person provides enough ash to fill 275 12 bore cartridges. This exercise in mass slaughter took place in Scotland at the end of January. Apparently the special cartridges were responsible for the deaths of 70 partridges, 23 pheasants, 7 ducks and a fox. I think they should have shot all the friends and used the spare cartridges bagging the local hunt
