Topic - Grouse moor licencing - a petition

toad - on 23 Apr 2013
OK, this seems like a relatively sensible proposal - the issue with raptor poisoning has always been around accountability, and to my mind this makes a degree of sense.

Here's the petition

http://epetitions.direct.gov.uk/petitions/46473

Here's the text:

Given the continuing levels of illegal persecution of birds of prey the Government is called upon to introduce a system of operating licences for upland grouse shoots.Following any proven offence of persecution on the shoot concerned, i.e. illegal trapping, use of poisons, shooting or the interference with or destruction of nests, the licence would be revoked for a period of not less than two years and commercial shooting activity cease.

Linked to the above the Government is called upon to introduce an accreditation scheme or licencing system for all gamekeepers, be they employed in a full time or part time capacity. If an individual then has any proven involvement with raptor persecution, the licence would be withdrawn for a period of three years along with the right to hold a gun licence. Any repetition of an offence would result in the licences being withdrawn for life.
