Ban the shooting of Pheasants, Partridges and Grouse for sport.

35 Million "game birds" are placed into the countryside annually for shooting, disrupting the environmental balance. Native wildlife is killed to increase the number of game birds available for shooting. Damage to the environment and suffering to native species and to the game birds is unacceptable.

The the introduction of a tens millions of non-native birds upsets the environmental balance of our countryside increasing competition, especially for food amongst native birds. Wildlife such as foxes, crows, magpies, badgers and weasels are directly or indirectly affected by shooting, snaring, trapping and illegal poisoning carried out by gamekeepers. Additionally, the loss of predator species does in itself further disrupt the local wildlife balance as species such as rodents can then thrive.

I am somewhat conflicted about this action. I do not really wish to make all shooting activities unlawful.
On the other hand, if it were to reach a good number of signatures, and 720 is well short of that, it would not be altogether a bad thing.
I might yet sign, as a protest type of signature, knowing the illegality involved in the activity.
