Third e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting

This is the text of an e-petition to call on politicians to ban driven grouse shooting which was launched on 20 March 2016.

It closed on 21 September with a total of 123,075 signatures

and, as a result of passing 100,000 signatures, will be debated by Westminster MPs later this autumn.

Ban driven grouse shooting

Grouse shooting for ‘sport’ depends on intensive habitat management which increases flood risk and greenhouse gas emissions, relies on killing Foxes, Stoats, Mountain Hares etc in large numbers and often leads to the deliberate illegal killing of protected birds of prey including Hen Harriers.

Driven grouse shooting uses animals for live target practice, with thousands killed every day. Native predators are killed because they eat Red Grouse. Mountain Hares are killed because they carry ticks that can spread diseases to grouse. Heather is burned to increase Red Grouse numbers for shooting. Grouse shooting is economically, ecologically and socially unnecessary. This is ‘canned hunting’.

Supported by Eduardo Gonçalves, CEO of League Against Cruel Sports, Chris Packham and Bill Oddie.

Please sign this e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting – the more signatures, the more chance of change.
