It’s looking good for Les Wallace’s epetition calling for a proper economic study of the costs and benefits of driven grouse shooting – but there’s still some way to go.
Another 700 signatures will mean that Defra has to respond to this epetition. My guess is that they will say ‘no’ because the last thing their grouse-shooting friends want is for the costs of poor land management to be taken into account. Increased flood risk, increased water treatment costs and damage to carbon stores are all features of grouse moor management that grouse shooting wants to remain buried.
Please sign this epetition – and ask a friend to do the same.
Thank you! With your help Les will get his 10,000 signatures soon.
