BASC says raptor persecution risks "terminal damage" to shooting

BASC has today featured in The Times newspaper addressing the issue of raptor persecution.

The newspaper quotes acting chief executive Christopher Graffius, referencing an article which appears in the November / December edition of  BASC's Shooting & Conservation magazine.

In his S&C article, Mr Graffius says: “Raptor persecution is the most common criticism of shooting. I've met many BASC members who would be appalled at the illegal killing of a protected species....but all of us need to realise that the killing of raptors is doing us no favours. It risks terminal damage to the sport we love. We must make it clear that wildlife crime has no place in our community.”
