On Wednesday the 12th August over 100 sabs descended on the Northern Peak District to disrupt the Glorious 12th, the traditional start of the grouse shooting season. Appropriate social distancing measures were observed to ensure we kept ourselves and local communities safe whilst doing everything we could to disrupt the shooters.
After several hours scouting the Peaks it became clear that they no longer risk shooting on the 12th in this area due to the threat posed by sabs so we moved North to the Pennines where a shoot was quickly located and stopped. Despite checking for the rest of the afternoon no other shoots were found and sabs began their, in some cases long, journeys home.
The Hunt Saboteurs Association is proud to have supported local groups with this mass shoot sab and we contributed a considerable fuel budget to enable groups to travel often long distances to attend.
