Gunshots echoing around the valley this morning. Sexually inadequate morons blasting away at grouse on the moors. Killing wild animals for the sheer, adulterated fun of it.

A friend’s son was hired as a grouse-beater a few years back. Good pocket-money. He was astonished to see all the dead birds being thrown into skips at the end of the day. Such pointless waste.
