The Real Price of Grouse: Traps

July 31, 2016

It’s legal for foxes, stoats, crows and other natural predators to be killed by shooting, trapping or snaring to ensure that high enough numbers of Red Grouse are available to be slaughtered during the shooting season. But it has been discovered that, on some estates, traps are used in an illegal way to kill birds of prey such as falcons, eagles and harriers which are protected by law.

“This type of illegal action against birds of prey is why you don’t see many birds of prey on some grouse moors. That’s why I support a petition to ban driven grouse shooting and I’m asking for you to add your name to it too. Thank you.”
