Please Sign Petition: Ban Driven Grouse Shooting!

https://petition.parliament.uk/petitions/201443

"Mismanagement of UK uplands for Driven Grouse Shooting leads to the illegal killing and persecution of British raptors, including Hen Harriers, Golden Eagles and Peregrine Falcons and causes significant flood risk, water pollution and environmental damage contributing to global climate change.
  • Raptors, Foxes, Badgers, Stoats, Hedgehogs and Mountain Hare are killed in their thousands each year.
     
  • Draining of peat bog (internationally valuable Carbon storage resource) and burning of heather has been shown to pollute our waterways, increase lowland flooding and cause significant environmental damage, contributing to climate change.
     
  • Grouse moorland estates and wealthy landowners have so far received £20m+ in subsidies paid for by the tax payer."
