Ban The Atherstone Hunt From Accessing Your Parks

This petition had 5,400 supporters

The Country Parks of Leicestershire, where I grew up, provide a home for many incredible species of animals and plants as well as giving the much needed green space for hundreds of thousands of people, if not millions, to enjoy every year - but the managers of these areas also have insisted on a relationship with wildlife criminals who brutally persecute red foxes. The Atherstone Hunt, who use Market Bosworth Country Park before their Boxing Day Hunts, have been repeatedly seen breaching The Hunting Act of 2004 and intimidating/assaulting those who oppose their acts in the field. You can see one clear example here from earlier today:

For any & all visitors to these parks and those who stand against the cruel treatment of animals, I urge you to sign this petition, and I urge the Country Park Service to ban The Atherstone Hunt from all of your land for good. Wildlife criminals should not be welcome on sites intended to preserve nature.
