Email them today!

Hunts claim to be laying trails to follow rather than hunting animals. This is a lie, used to deceive the public, secure political support, evade the law and get away with killing British mammals.

After 15 years of lies, the hunting lobby have let their mask slip. They have described trail hunting, in their own words, as a “smokescreen”.

“It’s a lot easier to create a smokescreen if you’ve got more than one trail layer operating, and that is what it’s all about, trying to portray to the people watching that you’re going about legitimate business.” – Mark Hankinson, Director of the Masters of Foxhounds Association

Fox hunting never went away. Foxes are being chased and torn apart under the guise of ‘trail’ hunting.

Up and down the country landowners and managers are allowing trail hunting to take place. By buying into the hunt’s lies they are allowing foxes to be chased and killed.

These landowners include:

  • National Trust
  • Forestry England
  • Ministry of Defence
  • Duchy of Cornwall
  • United Utilities
  • Defra
  • Church of England
  • Duke of Beaufort

Stop Press:

The landowners listed below have already suspended their licences for hunting. But a suspension is not a full ban; please keep the pressure up to end fox hunting permanently.

• Forestry England • National Trust • United Utilities • Lake District National Park • Natural Resources Wales

Contact them today and demand they stop being complicit in fox hunting, by banning trail hunting and all other hunting related activities.
