There was an entertaining six minute debate on this morning’s Farming Today, pitting Mark Avery against Andrew Gilruth on the subject of banning driven grouse shooting.
You’d think that G(W)CT would have a scientific representative to speak on their behalf. Apparently not. Instead they gave us someone who refused to acknowledge that driven grouse shooting causes any sort of environmental damage at all, and who advocates that all moorland in England should be intensively managed a la driven grouse moors. Mark wiped the floor with him.
You can listen here for the next 29 days (starts at 07.21).
