Unfortunately, this is not an isolated incident and there are many incidents involving hunts causing carnage to domestic animals and the public. A Keep The Ban report found that as of March 2021 there is on average one reported incident every two weeks involving hunts terrorising domestic animals or livestock.
Legislation should be introduced to prohibit any activity involving hunting hounds, such as trail hunts and hound exercise, taking place in a residential area or any other public place. This is why Keep The Ban supports the campaign for Mini’s Law (Public and Animal Safety Bill 2021) to ensure safety to the public and animals from all hunting activities.
