Bans were introduced for Scotland in 2002, and then for England and Wales in 2005 under the Hunting Act (2004) . Proponents see it as an important part of the rural culture and economy, useful for conservation and pest control, while opponents argue it is cruel and unnecessary. #keeptheban #againstfoxhunting

I've just signed the following petition addressed to: David Cameron Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Keep the Ban on Fox Hunting
Dear Mr Cameron Prime Minister of the United Kingdom,
Fox hunting is a sport that is a cruel one and not fit to be called a sport at all. Foxes are natural hunters and they have a right to find their food as human beings do. It is down to everyone to make sure their livestock and children are protected from foxes by taking the nessercary precautions.
Pleas do not take away their right to live by retracting the Fox Hunting Ban.
