The United Kingdom often describes itself as a ‘nation of animal lovers', but cruel sports are endemic across the UK.

This map provides a clear picture of the sheer scale of cruelty to animals in the name of ‘sport’.

HUNTING WITH DOGS

This innovative tool shows how many hare, deer and fox hunts continue to operate across Britain today.

Using your postcode, you can identify all of the hunts in your area, the territory in which they hunt and what uniform they wear. Click on ‘fox hunts’, ‘hare hunts’ or ‘staghounds’ to see the various types of hunting with dogs.

This map also enables you to contact your council, calling on them to ban hunting activity on public land. If there is no land, there is no hunting. Make your council’s land a sanctuary from hunts and help protect wildlife from suffering in the name of ‘sport’.

You will only need to complete the form once in order to contact your council to ban fox, hare and stag hunting activity.

JUST THE BEGINNING

This map currently shows all the hunts in Britain, but we will be adding more information on shooting and other ‘sports’ that shows the prevalence of animal cruelty.
