By an overwhelming majority Bradford councillors just voted to end grouse shooting on Ilkley Moor. Chris Luffingham, Director of Campaigns at the League Against Cruel Sports said:

“This is a landmark moment…. We are pleased to see that Bradford Council accepts the unnecessary suffering and collateral damage to wildlife and the environment that is caused by commercial shooting, and has returned the land to the people, instead of a small selection of bloodthirsty individuals.”

The move – which is also backed by the Liberal Democrats, the Green Party and independent councillors in Bradford – means that there is now no longer a single local authority across the UK still allowing grouse shooting to take place on public land.

.

The National Trust, on the other hand, already the last bastion of those who wish to kill mammals, persists…..

Over 7,500 people signed up to tell the National Trust that they no longer wanted to see grouse shooting on its Peak District Estates – to no avail.
