a trail of lies

Coming this Boxing Day

Across the UK trail hunting is still being used as a ‘smokescreen’ for illegal fox hunting.

This animation provides a platform to expose the scale of illegal fox hunting taking place in the UK.

Narrated by TV presenter and conservationist Chris Packham and voiced by actor Peter Egan, this animation documents the key moments since fox hunting was made illegal in 2004.

Please watch, share, and join our movement to end fox hunting for good!

Hunts Kill Hounds

Following a long running investigation carried out by the Hunt Investigation Team, supported by Keep The Ban, harrowing undercover footage has been released showing the Duke of Beaufort Hunt shooting dead four of their hounds.

These hounds are often deemed worthless for not showing enough hunting instinct or bloodlust. 

You can find out more about the investigation below.  Thank you to everyone who has supported KeepThe Ban, you have all played your part in making this possible.


Founded in 2015, Keep The Ban is a non-profit organisation campaigning to end the hunting of wildlife in the name of sport.

Our mission statement:
We want to create a world in which all wildlife is free from persecution.
Our campaigning will push wildlife persecution onto the mainstream agenda.
Our educating will encourage future generations to turn their backs on bloodsports.
Our investigating will expose wildlife persecution and influence decision makers to strengthen legislation and protect British wildlife.
