ONE OF THE MOST HORRIFIC EXAMPLES OF ANIMAL CRUELTY

Fox hounds don’t naturally hunt live animals. Instead, the young dogs must be trained to develop a bloodlust – at the expense of innocent fox cubs. This sickening practice is called cub hunting.

Despite being illegal for over a decade, an estimated 10,000 foxes are murdered during the cub hunting months.

ONE OF THE MOST DIFFICULT CASES OF CRUELTY TO PROVE

The first step in exposing this hidden horror of the hunting world is uncovering when and where these cruel cub hunts take place.

The hunts generally take place very early in the morning, hidden from view, to ensure the least amount of witnesses. It is a form of hunting rarely spoken about publicly by the perpetrators as not only is it banned under the Hunting Act, it is a practice most people would find abhorrent.

Please help us to expose the horrific reality of hunting in the media and ultimately strengthen the Hunting Act.


PRE-MEDITATED MURDER

As well as hunting ‘wild’ cubs, hunters may kidnap young foxes and store them in cages or sheds ready for ‘use’ in the cubbing season.

Before they are released into a small wood to be hunted, underground holes such as fox earths and badger setts are blocked up, which means the fox’s natural survival instinct of darting underground is thwarted.


Please help us protect innocent fox cubs from this shocking fate.
