The start of the grouse season was marred by saboteur attacks on shoots across North Yorkshire and the Peak district. We have put together some advice on what to do if your shoot comes under attack.
The NGO on behalf of its members have contacted the respective forces to ask for an explanation as to why there was no action to protect the people who were going about a lawful activity.
Whenever shooting takes place, there is a potential problem from people who may have different interests, hold opposing views or misunderstand what is happening. These include not just committed animal rights activists, but anyone else who is on land without lawful authority.
