End hunting, say campaigners on Cardiff's streets
Posted 30th July 2021
Volunteers and staff from the leading national animal welfare charity, including one in a fox costume, gathered on Queen Street to urge the residents and visitors to the Welsh capital to take action and sign up to its National Trust campaign.
The day of action in Cardiff is one of a series of League actions taking place across the country this summer ahead of the National Trust’s AGM in October, when there will be a vote in which members will get the chance to call for a permanent ban on the licensing of trail hunting.
Nick added: “Our day in Cardiff involved staff and volunteers meeting hundreds of interested local residents who signed up to our campaign about the National Trust licensing hunting.
“It was a really good day in Cardiff, and we had lots of people, including National Trust members, stop and talk to us about the campaign. It was great to see the children chatting to Vinny the fox, waving flags and having a great time."
The National Trust to its credit paused the licensing of trail hunting after this, but it is now time to have the ban made permanent.
