Stop subsidies to grouse moor owners.

Stop subsidies to grouse moor owners.

Why is this important?

Grouse moor owners receive many millions of pounds in subsidies from EU and UK. This is public money and is given on the premise that landowners do something to benefit the public. The poor management of these moors has been a contributory factor in increasing flood risk and in dramatically reducing raptor numbers in the UK. These moors are run for financial profit, are used by and benefit only a very few rich people who choose the killing of grouse as a pastime. There is absolutely no justification for public funding of these estates and I ask that you sign this petition to end it.
