Earlier today I sent this email to everyone in my address book & posted it on my Facebook page, Copy & Paste and do the same. If it generates one more signature it's worth it.
I know this is unusual for me but news has been released today of yet another Hen Harrier being shot. http://www.independent.ie/irish-news/rare-bird-and-blog-star-heather-the-harrier-shot-dead-30954300.html
These killings, although not proven in all cases, are the result of persecution by Land Managers & Gamekeepers to protect Red Grouse stocks on shooting estates. Please consider signing this petition to get Driven Grouse Shooting Banned. http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/65627
We are not asking for an outright ban on shooting, just this highly contentious and environmentally damaging type of shooting.
