Grouse shooting

GROUSE SHOOTING: UNNATURAL. UNCONTROLLED. UNKIND.


Grouse moor owners, supported by millions of pounds of taxpayer subsidies, brutally kill and maim a huge number of wild animals and leave vast swathes of precious peatland burnt dry and scarred with vehicle tracks.


This is all so that unnaturally large populations of red grouse can be nurtured as live targets for 'guns', who can pay more than £3,000 for a single day's bloody entertainment.



Animal Aid’s 2016 film, entitled ‘Grouse shooting: Unnatural. Uncontrolled. Unkind’ reveals the harmful and cruel nature of grouse shooting, including wildlife persecution, environmental damage and the destruction of the landscape.


Sign the petition calling for a ban on driven grouse shooting.
