Scotland - End Fox Hunting

20 years after fox hunting was supposed to be banned, League Against Cruel Sports Scotland secured landmark legislation to close the loopholes that let it continue.

The Hunting with Dogs (Scotland) Bill has passed in the Scottish Parliament and achieved Royal Assent. Thanks to the League and its supporters, packs of dogs can no longer be used to flush foxes to guns (except under, what we hope, is a very strict licence regime). The law is also extended to rabbits to make sure that an excuse to do ‘hare coursing’ as a cruel sport, does not take place in Scotland.

If you are one of the thousands of people who helped us get there – thank you!

After 9 years of campaigning we’ve finally done it, but we still need your support for monitoring, to make sure legislation is working. Foxes are also cruelly persecuted on sport shooting estates so more birds can be shot for sport and your help means we can fight to end this ‘killing to kill’.
