Nice people

Here is a selection of messages that Wild Justice has received over the last couple of days since news of our General Licence victory has emerged:

  • Having just seen the news item on the BBC regarding the despicable targeting of Chris Packham I thought I’d write to assure you there must be lots of other people like me who now know about the existence of Wild Justice and want to support your campaigns.  I’ve just made a donation of £50 and joined your newsletter list and I do hope the publicity prompts other people to do the same.  Nice to hope that these morons have possibly had the opposite effect to what they would have wanted….
  • Just to say keep up the good work.
  • Oh it is nice to hear someone so polite and coherent on the Jeremy Vine show for a change! Well done to you – and to Guy – for having such a respectful and informative discussion, and congratulations on your victory!
  • I am very pleased and grateful that your legal challenge has resulted in the revoking the 2019 General Licences.
  • This is just a note to thank you for your work in getting the gen. licensing law overturned.  It’s impressive that such a new body has achieved this in so short a time.  I too have a lifelong interest in birds having done voluntary work for the BTO and RSPB.  Corvids are my favourite birds.  I think the petition to try to have Chris sacked from the BBC is appalling and shows the level to which the ignorant will stoop in their attempts to stop free speech and rightful public protest.  I will sign up for your newsletter and will be making a donation next payday! 
  • Well done on the victory against shooting licences. I am appalled by the weasel words of BASC (“Will you also condemn the illegal behaviour of people who target legitimate rural businesses”) as if game farms have any place in a civilsed culture, and also by the nasty, sinister and would-be intimidating action at Chris’s gate.
  • Just wish to say carry on the good work.  Chris Packham, along with you all, is amazing and such a strong person and I admire the work you all do.
  • Just want to say I agree with your stance on challenging the general licences. The Crow is becoming a real favourite of mine, I enjoy watching them, they are quite mesmerising  and I know other people do too. I just love wild life, it’s people that are the real problem
  • Congratulations all of you for standing up for wildlife and winning!!

  1. I look forward to you publishing the other side of this coin, so that we can see the sort of people who like killing our wildlife for no good reason.

  2. Funny that you’ve not mentioned anything about the number of people who have signed the petition to get Chris Packham sacked! 90,00 in the last few days!! How you would have loved that kind of response to your “Ban Driven Grouse Shooting! What’s it like to be one of the most disliked individuals living and breathing today? You really are a total t….r!!

    1. Gosh Judes. One thing that separates you from people like Mark Avery and Chris Packham is that their opinions are well explained and supported with evidence and facts derived from evidence. The petition you cite will have soon run it’s course and those with financial and social interest in slaughter for fun will run out of ways of getting more signatures. However, those of us with a true interest in the environment and nature will always value Mark and Chris because they make a positive contribution for us all. Even you!

  3. I find it amusing how many people read the headlines, and not the text. BBC Radio Glos was interviewing someone this am who was talking about the massive impact it would have on his business. I was disappointed to see that NE anticipate having an alternative in place by 29th April.

  4. Jean, you quite obviously do not understand the type of species that are included in the general licence and the damage to crops and songbirds that they clearly have a negative impact upon. Human behaviour is to blame for the imbalance of the pest species included on the list. I assume that your comments of “slaughter for fun” relate to the sporting shooting of food species such as pheasant, partridge and grouse…etc….please note that these are not included in the general licence to which the comme ts are referring. Hope you enjoy your Sunday roast.

    1. Unfortunately for you, the scientific evidence does not support your contention. Songbird decline is closely related to farming practices: that is proven beyond doubt by innumerable peer-reviewed scientific papers. The reversal of that decline has been demonstrated on numerous better managed farms: and fully documented.

      If you want to stop Woodpigeons damaging your crops, return to Spring sowing. You are the people that are encouraging their population boom by feeding them all year round. If you want to stop Corvid predation of songbirds, return your hedgerows to good order and leave sensible, well-planted borders to your fields. This will also give them a chance of surviving the empty period in February and March.

  5. Freedom of choice Ian…freedom of choice!!. I have never met anyone engaged in the legal sport of shooting that has insisted that all others should conform to their beliefs. Hope you enjoyed your Sunday roast.
