Together we can protect defenceless foxes


Imagine being chased, running for your life knowing that your home is no longer safe. Horrendous, isn’t it? Sadly, this suffering is a reality for many foxes.

Here to protect animals from being harmed or killed in the name of ‘sport’, we believe that every fox deserves to live a life free from harm. Animals can’t defend themselves from being hunted. But together we can protect them.

Every fox deserves our protection

Although banned in 2004, last year alone we recorded an average of at least one incident relating to fox hunting every other day.

The evidence is overwhelming. Illegal fox hunting is still happening. Right now. In our countryside.

The truth on ‘trail’ hunting

    Animal Charity

    Using ‘trail’ hunting as a smokescreen for illegal hunting, trail hunting is an invention that was triggered because of the Hunting Act 2004, as hunts now claim they follow a pre-laid animal-based scent.

    But this isn’t the case.

    In November 2020 a series of training webinars were leaked that showed senior figures from the Masters of Foxhounds Association and the Countryside Alliance admitting that trail hunting is a “smokescreen” for the chasing and killing of foxes.

    Foxes need our protection - calling on the Government to strengthen the Act.
