Closed petition Allow culling of black-backed gulls using a general licence

In 2020 black-backed gulls were removed from the list of birds that can be killed using a general licence, which allows an authorised person to kill or take certain animals to prevent serious damage to livestock, crops, vegetables, fruit, fisheries or inland waters. We want this decision reversed.

More details

Black-backed gulls can spread diseases to livestock, and kill smaller birds, and a particular issues in parts of the country.

We want the Government to add black-backed gulls back to the list of animals that can be killed or taken using a general licence, so populations can be controlled.
