A Map of Cruel Sports

Find out which hunts operate in your area

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’,  ‘staghounds’ or 'Mink Hunts' to see the various types of hunting with dogs that still exist in the UK today.

Many hunts claim they hunt 'trails' or use exemptions in the Hunting Act to carry on killing wildlife for so-called sport. However, trail hunting has been described by those at the very top of hunting as a "smokescreen" for old-fashioned illegal hunting, and we say enough is enough - strengthen the Hunting Act and close those loopholes for good. No animal should die for someone's entertainment. 

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.

We're the UK's leading animal charity working to make cruel sports a thing of the past. Find out more on our work against fox hunting, trail hunting and cubbing. Also, our work against snares, game shooting, dog fightinggreyhoundbullfightinghare coursing, mink hunting, and more.
