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.

REIN IN THE HUNTERS – STRENGTHEN THE HUNTING ACT


Reasons for signing

  • It's barbaric
  • Because there is no excuse for myonehunting animals for pleasure.
  • Animals should not be hunted to ease the boredom of others. While some consider them a menace, they are simply free and wild animals. We are the ones who get in their way with our houses and roads, they shouldn’t be treated so badly because we can’t shut up and tolerate them. We should leave them alone, for one day they won’t be here because of us.
