In a bid to highlight the devastation of grouse moor management, we launched a campaigning film, Government’s Den; it imagines a world where grouse shooting doesn’t exist, and puts two lobbyists in front of the ‘dragons’, arguing for huge swathes of Scotland to be managed for the ‘sport’.

The video is intended to be taken tongue in cheek, but behind the humour is a very serious issue. Driven grouse shooting is an intensely managed blood sport which depends on turning huge areas of Scotland into barren monocultures. The circle of destruction which surrounds grouse moor management causes untold suffering to many thousand of animals, depletes our peat reserves, and causes environmental damage on an industrial scale.

To find out if the lobbyists win over the ‘dragons’ with their arguments, we invite you to watch the Government’s Den below.
