Images of Wildlife Slaughter, captured on Grouse Moors. Dozens of reason why Driven Grouse Shooting must be banned.

If anyone was unsure where they stood about banning driven grouse shooting in England, examine the two composite images below which may just change your mind if you had any doubts. The two images portray trapped, shot and poisoned animals and birds of prey all killed to protect game stocks which are bred and released in their millions and then shot for sport. The images are a testimony to the kind of biodiversity maintained by gamekeepers on the moorland shooting estates they patrol and manage. There is simply no biodiversity, these ecosystems have been totally destroyed managed solely for producing an over population of red grouse, pheasant, partridge which are themselves shot for pleasure and enjoyment. Please sign Mark Avery’s petition calling for a ban of all Driven Red Grouse shooting in England HERE.

    Brian, these people you are talking about are still living in the Victorian age. We preach to other countries for example Malta and Cyprus about their shooting and hunting, but we are no better over here in a so called civilised society. Just the other day the former WCO for Lancashire posted a photo on twitter of a juvenile male, forehead smeared in blood from a dead grouse he was holding which apparently he had just shot; this was the boys first Grouse kill. The former WCO for Lancashire who now works for BASC finished the twitter posting by saying “so rewarding,” yes this was in 21st century on a grouse moor in England.
