Tighten law against employers connected to persecution
An independent e-petition has been posted on the UK government website calling for Vicarious Liability for raptor persecution in England. This would mean that landowners/employers who encourage, allow or turn a blind eye to bird of prey persecution by their staff can themselves be prosecuted. This measure is available to prosecutors in Scotland, but not yet in England.
The Hawk and Owl Trust is formally supporting this e-petition as part of our campaign to halt the persecution of all birds of prey.
Please take a few moments to sign up – and also encourage others to sign, too.
