It's time to really ban hunting in Scotland

Last year, League Against Cruel Sports Investigators produced video evidence that fox hunting is carrying on in Scotland the same way that it always has.

Shockingly, mounted hunts are still using hounds to run down and tear apart foxes in the same way that they did when the Scottish Parliament passed laws intended to ban hunting in 2002.

The Scottish Government responded to our evidence by commissioning an independent review into foxhunting. The report has now been published, and has recommended that the law be clearer and stronger to protect our wild animals.

The Environment Secretary, Roseanna Cunningham, has said she will consider the proposals and respond. But we want to make sure she responds quickly and promises action.

No right thinking person wants to see animals suffer the way a fox recently hunted in Kilbarchan suffered. Its autopsy showed that dogs tore into its flank, through its skin and muscle, exposing its lung. It had suffered “significant unnecessary suffering”.

We have the evidence, an independent review has recommended the law be changed, and now we need the Scottish Government to change the law.

If you live in Scotland, please sign the petition to tell the Scottish Government that this cannot be allowed to continue in 21st century Scotland and that you want them to act now to stop the cruelty.
