I was innocently browsing through Twitter when the excellent Chris Packham highlighted this petition. Perhaps we can arrange for all the rabid hunting supporters to be absent from the ensuing debate.
It's currently standing at 4,970 signatures.
I'm adding a link to the petition to license driven grouse shooting even though I'd personally like to see it consigned to history. Licensing it is probably better than nothing at all.
Our herring gulls are red listed birds. Think about that the next time you hear some flaming idiot calling for a cull of them.
Well done Clare for putting the link on, I signed it the other day when I too was innocently browsing through twitter and saw the excellent Wendy had highlighted the petition lol.
