Protect the fox

Protect the fox

We at Brighton Against Fox Hunting are campaigning to have the fox made a protected species. We are heading down this route due to the blatant disregard for current laws by not only the huntsmen but also the authorities and political parties that are meant to support the enforcement of infringements made against this act. Having the foxes granted protected species status would garner them further protection under more stringently enforced laws closing the loopholes exploited by the aforementioned parties.

Why is this important?

This is extremely important as the fox is one of very few of our native species not currently protected under this act and the animal welfare act.
Below is an article highlighting the importance again..

'RED FOX
The long-term index for Red Fox has reached a new low, with the trend showing a decline of 42% between 1996 and 2017 across the UK as a whole. Both the 10- and five-year trends show declines, of 28% and 25% respectively.
For countries and regions reaching the reporting threshold, Red Fox shows declines across the board'
