But!


This Red Riding Hood springs from a growing frustration at the way the countryside in Britain is managed not for the conservation of wildlife, but increasingly as a playground for the rich to shoot, either wildlife or stock bred for shooting, such as grouse and pheasants.

I am also angry at the way bodies acting on behalf of wildlife being manipulated with funding cuts and sanctions.

In my illustration the forest has been felled, on the stumps the grouse perch and the poor wolf is lead away on a red thread, gagged with a scarlet ribbon.  It is called 'But!'
