The real price of grouse: episode 6

NotsoGlorious-black-bg - Copy

Here’s episode 6 in a series of videos hosted by Chris Packham about the #NotSoGlorious damaging management practices associated with the driven grouse shooting industry. Episode one (an introduction to driven grouse shooting) can be watched here.  Episode 2 (the damaging environmental effects of heather burning) can be watched here. Episode 3 (traps) can be watched here. Episode 4 (parasites, medication and the mass killing of mountain hares) can be watched here. Episode 5 (flooding) can be watched here.

Here’s episode 6, all about subsidies (i.e. how your taxes are helping to pay for driven grouse shooting):

Over 121,000 people have joined Chris and signed the e-petition to ban driven grouse shooting. We’ve passed the 100,000 signatures needed to trigger a Westminster debate and we’re currently waiting to hear when that debate will take place. In the meantime, this petition is open until 20th September and the more signatures, the better. Please join us and sign HERE 

Thank you!

    It would be interesting to have a lot more detail of the subsidies here; laid out by owner and by county.and clearly the fact that CAP subsidies are not on the Register of Financial Interests of Parliament maybe any MP should be required to declare before the debate, if they intend to speak, as to the level of their interest here.

    In Pennsylvania this week I have seen more birds of prey in 3 days than I see in 3months in the Cairngorms.
