Although the Government have abandoned the vote to amend the Hunting Act the legislation remains under threat. The pro-hunt lobby has vowed to continue its fight for repeal, and the Government has reiterated its commitment to a vote on the issue.
It is vital that you contact your MP so that they know any vote to water down or repeal the Hunting Act is a vote for animal cruelty pure and simple.
By trying to amend the Hunting Act, the government would be deliberately and cynically making it easier for hunts to chase and kill foxes, and harder for them to be convicted when they break the law. This is not about hunting foxes for pest control. It’s about hunting foxes for fun.
Hunting with hounds, whether the victims are foxes, deer or hares, is nothing but a cruel pastime carried out by a minority who like to see animals ripped apart.
