https://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/public38/images/candidate.gif Foxes are regularly being killed by hunts in Cheshire. The 2004 Hunting Act created by a Labour government, outlawed the hunting of mammals with dogs. We want the Hunting Act to be robustly followed and when foxes or other mammals are killed by hunting with dogs, we want hunters arrested and charged appropriately.
Why is this important?
Hunting wild animals with dogs is a cruel blood sport and has no place in a civilized society. Terrified animals are chased for miles then ripped apart by a pack of dogs, this is regularly happening in Cheshire. Cheshire Constabulary has never successfully prosecuted anyone for illegal hunting. Cheshire Constabulary has passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service only once in the last three years.
