Ban East Sussex & Romney Marsh Fox Hunt from Battle on Boxing day

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


Each Boxing Day the East Sussex & Romney Marsh Fox hunt is allowed to meet outside Battle Abbey, even while 85% of the population opposes fox hunting.

This hunt is under investigation after being caught on film killing a fox by footage taken from a drone:

In 2018 their hounds invaded the Celia Hammond Cat Sanctuary, chasing off many cats protected by the charity, not all were found. If the hunt follows a prepared false trail how why did this occur?

The evidence is clear that this hunt is acting with impunity trying to kill wildlife. We ask Battle Town Council, Rother District Council and East Sussex County council who give permission for this hunt to meet on public land and roads, to ban them this boxing day and all boxing days to come, to support the 85% of the population who want hunting stopped.

Please stop allowing them to have an air of respectability by supporting this activity, allowing them to parade during the festive season as if killing animals for 'sport' is acceptable..
