councils campaign

Despite the hunting ban, there are almost 300 hunts across the country still heading out and killing wildlife throughout the year.

However if the hunts don’t have the land to use, then this significantly curtails their ability to continue their outdated and cruel activities.

Many hunts use land managed by local councils and authorities, especially for the annual Boxing Day meets where hunts parade through towns and villages.

Dear x Council,
Following the revelations of leaked Hunting Officer webinars which showed senior hunt officials admitting to using trail hunting as a “smokescreen” for illegal fox hunting, it was good to see that several councils have decided to ban hunting on their land. However, whilst it might be the first-time hunting’s top brass have been caught admitting it to the world, the fact that trail hunting is a coverup for illegal hunting is nothing new. Since the 2004 Hunting Act was introduced, so-called “trail hunts” up and down the country have continued to use the farcical lie of trail laying as a means of covering up the deliberate and intentional killing of wild mammals.
Time and time again evidence has been presented of hunts breaking the law and yet landowners have continued to hide behind the trail hunt lies. Only when confronted by insurmountable pressure from the public and mainstream media, following the leaked webinars, have some of the nation’s biggest landowners chosen to save face and make a decision that should have been made years earlier. It goes without saying that countless animals that could have otherwise been saved have died as a result of the continued allowance of trail hunts.

X Council has a decision to make. It must choose whether to allow its’ land to be used by so-called “trail hunts” that are repeatedly and intentionally killing wildlife. As a nation of animal lovers, we have a real opportunity to protect our wildlife and only a permanent ban will send a clear message that X Council stands against illegal wildlife persecution.
I trust you’ll make the right decision.

Yours sincerely,
