Protesting Grouse Shooting on Yorkshire's Moors

On August 11th 2018, Ban Bloodsports on Yorkshire’s Moors and the League Against Cruel Sports held a joint protest in the Calder Valley market town of Hebden Bridge to urge Yorkshire Water to stop leasing moorland for the controversial 'sport' of grouse shooting. Charlie Moores met with the speakers at the Hebden Bridge event to discuss why the event was targeting the utility company, and the impact of grouse shooting on the local area and its wildlife. In the following interview you will hear from Luke Steele, founder of Ban Bloodsports on Yorkshire’s Moors; Ros, a local naturalist and campaigner; Nick Weston, Head of Campaigns at the League Against Cruel Sports; and Dominic Dyer, chief executive of the Badger Trust and Policy Advisor at Born Free Foundation.
