Help struggling businesses - not fox hunting groups

Taxpayer funded grants should not be used to prop up groups profiting from animal cruelty. They should be spent on struggling small businesses.

Why is this important?

Shropshire County Council has given money that was intended to help businesses struggling because of COVID...to fox hunting groups. While shops on our high streets close their doors, aid that's meant to help them weather the Covid-19 crisis has gone to fund cruel bloodsports instead.

Animal welfare groups and some MPs are already kicking up a fuss. Now what's needed is a massive outcry from the public - to show we don't want public funds going to groups that are propping up this cruel practice. Will you sign the petition now?

Reasons for signing

  • Fox hunting is an illegal, cruel and barbaric practice and should not be funded by our taxes! Enforce the law NOW!!
  • Shropshire council have given this money to this evil sport yet have given nothing to flood resilience
  • Hardly an essential business for the wellbeing of Britain. If they want to ride roughshod in garish outfits on some dubious 'drag hunt' let them fund it. Appreciate the need to keep rural businesses afloat but something a little more environmentally sound methinks Shropshire council
