SPAG on BBC Countryfile this Sunday!

Our campaign to stop the slaughter of up to 5,000 seals in the UK has been so successful it is to be featured on BBC One’s flagship rural affairs programme ‘Countryfile’ this Sunday 5th April at 7pm.

Last week, SPAG’s Campaign Director Andy Ottaway travelled to a remote location in western Scotland to film an interview for the programme, hosted by veteran broadcaster John Craven, to highlight our campaign to stop the shooting of seals by the Scottish salmon industry.

“Millions of Countryfile viewers will be horrified to learn that dead seals is the price of Scottish salmon,” said Andy Ottaway, “We want retailers to insist that salmon producers stop killing seals and members of the public to avoid all Scottish salmon products until they do”.
