AXA Insurance: Stop insuring Wildlife Crime!

AXA Insurance: Stop insuring Wildlife Crime!

The UK has vibrant wildlife and hunts routinely go out to kill innocent animals who are simply living their lives. I want to be able to show my children wild foxes but at the rate that hunts in the UK are going we may soon have killed the last fox.

The Hunting Act 2010 already gives hunts protection due to the amount of proof that the prosecution must bring to the case.

As has occurred on several instances, a video showing hunts killing foxes are thrown out for insufficient evidence, and abusing members of the public is permitted and rarely punished. In fact, even cases of attempted murder by charging at Hunt Saboteurs with horses or slashing into a hunt sab's skull, or even manslaughter as in the case of Mike Hill 1991 or Tom Worby 1994 are dropped and dismissed.

Hunts are taking advantage of AXA insurance to continue to carry out wildlife crime and violence towards people and animals.

End this partnership for the sake of your business' reputation as no reputable business would partner with wildlife thugs who do not care about the safety of human beings, of wild animals, or the protection of ecosystems.

Why is this important?

AXA provide insurance for every hunts legal fees, this covers Hunting Act offences and violence towards sabs and monitors. The first year of cover they actually lost money due to the high number of hunting act cases and arrests for assaults: https://huntingleaks.is/wp-content/uploads/legal-fees-insurance1920.pdf

We are now asking everyone to please start your own campaign against AXA, the more of us who take them on whether with petitions, demos outside their premises, emails, phone calls whatever, the faster they are likely to pull the policy.

Without legal insurance, each Hunting Act conviction or act of violence legal costs will have to either come directly from the hunt’s own funds or from a central fund, if it comes from a central fund then hunts who face less legal action may well wonder why they are paying out for others.

Targeting AXA insurance will send a message to AXA and anyone that dares do business with wildlife terrorists that the public will not tolerate ethically bankrupt businesses.
It also will send a shockwave through the remaining hunts, making them aware that their time abusing animals is nearing the end.
