The persecution of our birds of prey is a disgrace to our country, landowners, gamekeepers and pigeon fanciers think that they have the right to break the law and shoot, poison, trap and beat birds of prey to death.Many raptors are left injured to die a slow painful death,the punishment that people who commit these crimes receive is disgraceful and brings shame to this country, most found guilty get a suspended sentence. I am asking you to support this petition and tell this government that custodial sentences must mean just that.
Our birds of prey, including owls, are protected by law and until harsher sentences are imposed on the people who break this law raptors will continue to die horrible deaths by people who have no respect for the birds or the law.
