fox hunting on the BBC on Boxing Day

Posted on December 27, 2012


Yesterday (26th December), the BBC posted not one but four items on their news web-site and also broadcast three of them on their television news programmes, about fox hunting, the proposed repeal of the hunting act, fox hunts and Boxing Day fox-hunting meets but not, apparently, about the killing fields of Britain. Three of the items include video.

The four items are:

‘Hunting: Minister says ban repeal vote “not imminent”‘: read the item and add your comment online at

‘Hunts: Countryside Alliance v League Against Cruel Sports’: read the item and view video at

‘Fox hunting ban vote unlikely, says Environment Secretary’: read the item and view video at

‘”A city man can’t understand our life'”‘: read the item and view video at


The BBC’s coverage yesterday of the issues doesn’t look balanced or complete; you can send a comment or complaint to the BBC via links at

Please support the League Against Cruel Sports, the RSPCA and the Hunt Saboteurs Association and all their work for wild animals and their campaigns against hunting and wildlife crime.
