Prosecute the Portman Hunt

In November 2019 the Portman Hunt were filmed chasing a fox with a pack of hounds. Despite being handed video showing the huntsman not stopping his hounds from hunting the fox, Dorset Police dropped all charges against the two individuals who were responsible, due to a lack of evidence.

This is totally unacceptable and this petition asks that Dorset Police review the decision not to prosecute and carry out a full and open enquiry in to the policing of fox hunts in the county .

Only by completing and publishing the findings of the enquiry can the public be assured that those who carry out such practices are being held accountable and facing justice through the courts.
