While many people have great affection and respect for grey squirrels, they are hated by members of certain groups, most notably those with shooting or forestry interests, and some 'conservationists' who believe that the mass killing of greys is justifiable in their quest to boost the number of red squirrels. What is even worse is that the European Union is introducing a new law obliging the United Kingdom, Ireland and Italy to organise the killing of hundreds of thousands of grey squirrels (in certain areas), every year from 2016. Some are now trying commercialise squirrel meat.

What can I do?

Don't eat squirrel meat! Unbelievably, some places are trying to create a market for it.

Boycott Duchy Originals over Prince Charles' advocating killing grey squirrels (as recently as late 2014 Prince Charles was advocating killing grey squirrels on his land)

Also, the best way to end the suffering of all animals is to go vegan - or at least start in that direction. We can help you do just that. Please also share this page with your friends and family so that they know how animals suffer and how they can help end that suffering.
