Hunting with Dogs
Hunting wild animals with dogs for sport was banned in Scotland in 2002 and England and Wales in 2004. These are fantastic achievements, however, the war to stamp out hunting in the UK is not yet won.
There have been two attempts to weaken the Hunting Act by David Cameron, most recently in July 2015. We were at the forefront of the campaign to ensure that this attempt to bring back hunting by the back door did not succeed.
As a key player in the hard-fought battle to get hunting with dogs banned, the League Against Cruel Sports is working hard to ensure the law is enforced, and that any attempts to amend or repeal the legislation are successfully exposed and blocked.
Rest assured, after 90 years of campaigning to both bring about and enforce a ban on hunting with hounds for sport, we remain ever vigilant in defence of the Act. For now though the foxes, hares, deer and other wild mammals that the legislation protects, remain safe from the full horrors of traditional hunting.
