It took more than 80 years of campaigning to banish the obscene 'sport' of foxes, deer, hares and mink being chased and ripped apart. Yet, astonishingly some - including the current Government - are thinking about turning back the clock.
The Government is considering amending the Hunting Act 2004 to remove the restriction on the number of dogs used in the 'flushing to guns' exemption. If this amendment is approved by Parliament, the result will be that the Act will become almost impossible to enforce. In essence, this will be like allowing hunting with dogs to return 'by the back door'. We fear that this could happen very quickly, in the next few weeks.
Don't let it happen! Say "NO!" to a return to cruelty.
Urge your MP to vote against this Hunting Act amendment, because it would make enforcement of the hunting ban almost impossible.
