Narrated Hisham bin Zaid:

Anas and I went to Al-Hakam bin Aiyub. Anas saw some boys shooting at a tied hen. Anas said, "The Prophet has forbidden the shooting of tied or confined animals."
حَدَّثَنَا أَبُو الْوَلِيدِ، حَدَّثَنَا شُعْبَةُ، عَنْ هِشَامِ بْنِ زَيْدٍ، قَالَ دَخَلْتُ مَعَ أَنَسٍ عَلَى الْحَكَمِ بْنِ أَيُّوبَ، فَرَأَى غِلْمَانًا ـ أَوْ فِتْيَانًا ـ نَصَبُوا دَجَاجَةً يَرْمُونَهَا‏.‏ فَقَالَ أَنَسٌ نَهَى النَّبِيُّ صلى الله عليه وسلم أَنْ تُصْبَرَ الْبَهَائِمُ‏.‏
