Britain: hunt saboteurs in action today

Posted on February 16, 2013

Today (16th February), as it is a Saturday during the season, fox hunts all over the country will be out trying to kill any foxes which they can find – including in Essex and Suffolk. Volunteer hunt saboteurs will also be out, trying to save  lives and record any wildlife crime.

(‘Fox hunts’ consist of huntsmen/huntswomen on horses with a pack of hounds, men with terriers and perhaps quad bikes, hunt servants with guns and perhaps birds of prey, and hunt followers in cars.) Hunts go out every Saturday during the season and also, sometimes, on weekdays. Foxes are pursued, trapped and horribly killed.

FOXES NEED YOU! – why not join the hunt saboteurs?! – and get some fresh air and see the countryside.

Please support the Hunt Saboteurs Association (HSA) and your local hunt saboteurs; visit the HSA web-site at www.huntsabs.org.uk/

The League Against Cruel Sports (LACS) says:
‘… Hunting wild animals with dogs for sport was banned in 2004 …

Hunting animals for sport is illegal, but the law is being broken. The League uses investigators and legal professionals to work with Police and courts to catch wildlife criminals.

.

LACS is also leading a Wildlife Crimewatch scheme; read more at www.league.org.uk/content/687/Report-a-crime – LACS ask you to ‘be our Wildlife Crimewatch eyes and ears in the countryside’. You can file a report online or call their Wildlife Crimewatch line.

There are different forms of hunting, blood sports and wildlife crime.
