Ban Bloodsports on Ilkley Moor
This petition made change with 1,266 supporters!
We, the undersigned, call on Bradford Metropolitain District Council to ban grouse shooting and related predator control on Ilkley Moor for the following reasons:
1) Bloodsports - such as grouse shooting where birds are shot out of the sky for entertainment - are inherently cruel. The related capture of animals - such as stoats, weasels and small mammals - in Fenn traps and lamping of foxes also causes suffering. Ilkley Moor must be used to educate people about wildlife, not kill wildlife.
2) Ilkley Moor is an area for walkers to enjoy and people to learn. The rights of walkers must take priority over bloodsports.
3) The undertaking of bloodsports and related trapping on public land is unsafe, to the point of mortality, and causes bad publiclity for the area.
