Strengthen the Hunting Act

Why is this important?

The Hunting Act is in urgent need of strengthening, to enable the authorities to clamp down on illegal hunting.

At present, hunts can escape prosecution – and nearly always do - by cynically claiming their pursuit and killing of a hunted animal was “unintentional”. This nonsense is enabling hunts to carry on as if there were no ban at all.

Over 80% of the British public support the ban, but hunters appear to believe they are above the law. 50,000 hunters signed a Declaration before the ban came into force stating they would defy it, and continue to hunt as before, thus displaying their total contempt for democracy.


Reasons for signing

  • The loopholes must be closed. Ilegal hunting is against the law.
  • We need to all come together to show we will not tolerate this evil sport
  • To ensure that the act does as intended and not be abused. it it routinely is now. Why should these bloody people make life any harder for these animals than it already is? Why should they repeatedly break the law?
