Buzz Petition

Due to the advancement of human civilization and our encroachment on natural habitats of animals, the delicate balance of nature is regularly disturbed. And often, our intervention with Mother Nature is even more direct and intentional, i.e. hunting, which leads to drastic consequences for wildlife and the environment. One such case involves ravens in Scotland. According to reports, hundreds of these birds will be allowed to be killed legally under a license issued by the Scotland Natural Heritage (SNH).

A petition on Care2 notes that ravens are classified as a protected species that has struggled to revive after facing near extinction. The SNH says that over the next five years, 300 ravens are set to be killed … merely as an experiment to “see what happens” and if it will have any effect on birds classified as waders. This mass killing is experimental with no sound scientific evidence to support the action. Similarly to the mass killing of wild horses, burros, and wolves in the U.S. for the sake of cattle ranches, this mass killing is also supported by special interest groups, like farmers and gamekeepers, who claim they wish to protect waders.

To make matters even worse, this mass killing is set to take place in Perthshire, an area described as a “wildlife crime hotspot” where six tagged eagles have recently disappeared. To read more in-depth on the problems at hand, visit here.

This creation of human-wildlife conflict is unnecessary and absurd with no sound reasoning. Please take a moment to sign the petition demanding a stop to this mass killing of ravens.

And please make sure to do your part to spread awareness of this issue by sharing this with your network!
