Foxes are regularly being killed by hunts in Cheshire. The 2004 Hunting Act created by a Labour government, outlawed the hunting of mammals with dogs. We want the Hunting Act to be robustly followed and when foxes or other mammals are killed by hunting with dogs, we want hunters arrested and charged appropriately.
Why is this important?
Hunting wild animals with dogs is a cruel blood sport and has no place in a civilized society. Terrified animals are chased for miles then ripped apart by a pack of dogs, this is regularly happening in Cheshire. Cheshire Constabulary has never successfully prosecuted anyone for illegal hunting. Cheshire Constabulary has passed a file to the Crown Prosecution Service only once in the last three years.
I just signed the petition “Cheshire Police – Prosecute Illegal Hunters!” and wanted to ask if you could add your name too.
This campaign means a lot to me and the more support we can get behind it, the better chance we have of succeeding. You can read more and sign the petition below.
P.S. Can you also take a moment to share the petition with others? It’s really easy – all you need to do is share this post on Facebook or Twitter using our Share Buttons ( that hopefully work!!
