Its not the grouse shooting that bothers me so much, although I can't see the attraction; its the systematic persecution of other wildlife I object strongly to, and if the estates won't operate within the law, they should be shut down. Although I certainly wouldn't argue against a blanket ban on shooting grouse, either.

That is how I feel, it is all the burning, shooting trapping of mountain hare and the killing of HH and if they cannot work with in the law it is time they are stopped!

Me too. Did you see the photos of the culled mountain hares in the back of Landrovers up in Scotland? Have a look on the Raptor Persecution Scotland blog.

The killing of all the hares was despicably and I still don't

know how they can get away with it, as surely they are

classed as game, so restrictions must apply, but that was just mass slaughter.
