STOP THE KILLING OF RAVENS IN ENGLAND

The Government sponsored agency Natural England, under direction from environment secretary Michael Gove, has issued licences allowing farmers in England to shoot ravens.
The farmers say that the rare birds are a threat to lambs and piglets.

Ravens are a protected species.
They are only just beginning to recover from long term decline and still number less than 8,000 pairs in the whole of the United Kingdom.
They should not be culled.

This is a misguided killing spree which will severely impact on the future survival of the species.
The move will do nothing to improve the Government's already tarnished reputation on environmental matters.

The licences have been issued to farmers in five counties, but as we have seen from the badger cull, this appalling plan is likely to be rolled out nationwide unless it can be stopped.

We ask the Government to reconsider this ill-conceived slaughter of yet another protected species and demand that they revoke the licences.
There are better ways to protect farm livestock than to embark on the mass destruction of an endangered and much loved bird.
