  1. I suppose that they have but al we really need is to know how many and for the bloody numbwits that kill them "en masse" to desist

  2. With the slaying of mountain hares and hen harries just to enhance money from grouse moors I am reminded of an Ancient Greek quotation, “ tame the savagery of man and make gentle the life of this world”. The campaign to ban driven grouse shooting and all the excesses it brings with it, is represented very well by this quotation.
