National Trust AGM: End Hunting Demonstration

Harrogate Convention Centre, Harrogate, HG1 5LA


30th October 2021

This October, National Trust members can vote in favour of banning ‘trail’ hunting and other hunting related activities on trust land.

Trail hunting was invented after hunting with hounds was made illegal by the Hunting Act 2004. The National Trust issues trail hunting licences because of the hunts’ assertion that what they do is legal. However, years of evidence has shown that foxes are still being chased and killed by hunts, in direct opposition to the Hunting Act. Additionally, in November last year, recordings of a webinar conducted by the Hunting Office and other senior hunting officials were leaked in which they describe trail hunting as a “smokescreen” – which can only mean it’s a cover for real hunting.

It is for this reason that the League Against Cruel Sports supports the resolution, submitted by Dr Denise Taylor.

Please join us outside the National Trust AGM at the Harrogate Convention Centre on October 30 for a peaceful demonstration to encourage Trust members to vote to ban hunting for good.
