Despite the glossing over of the fact by the press release issued by the Moorland Association, with quotes from the Game and Wildlife ‘Conservation’ ‘Trust’, two tagged, brood-meddled Hen Harriers are missing. These two Hen Harriers are the subject of ongoing police investigations:
So that’s something that wasn’t mentioned by the Moorland Association in their press release…
And it is the Durham Police and North Yorkshire Police who are investigating. One assumes that they knew that the Moorland Association were issuing this press release…wouldn’t you think? So, how odd is it that there was no ‘If you have any information about these missing birds then contact…’ line in the press release.
Operation Owl? Partnership? What a hoot!
Natural England’s comment on the birds whose brood meddling they licensed? Shhhhhhh!!!! When will either Teresa Dent or Natural England realise that her position on their board is untenable while GWCT spin doctor Andrew Gilruth is playing games in the media? Wild Justice may ask Tony Juniper about this when we meet him in October.
It’s all going ‘very well’ so far, it seems. Who could have guessed?
By the way, it’s time for us all to start to give Chris Packham’s e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting a last push over the next few weeks.
Please sign this e-petition calling for driven grouse shooting to be banned.[registration_form]
